Child Find

At Adams 12 Child Find, we make sure that children demonstrating they may have difficulty in learning or possible delays, can get the help they need to be successful.  Below is a list of developmental areas that we evaluate:

  • academic (early learning/concepts, thinking, problem solving, preschool access skills)
  • communication (articulation, language, fluency and voice)
  • motor (fine and gross motor)
  • social/emotional
  • self-help
  • hearing and/or vision

Children can be referred to Child Find by a parent, doctor or community agency.  The process for children age 3-5 will begin with a developmental screening and when appropriate, a multi-disciplinary, play-based, evaluation.   The team, including parents, will then make some decisions about next steps, which include eligibility for special education services. 

If you have concerns about your child's development please contact Child Find

         Jody Davis at 720-972-6145, or

         Katrina Groetken at 720-972-3870 for Spanish-speaking families.
