BISMARCK (UTN) - The sixth annual United Tribes Child Find Fair is scheduled for Thursday, October 29 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the James Henry Community Building gymnasium on the UTTC campus.

      The event provides fun activities and important information about early intervention services including screening, development, safety, parent resources, and nutrition.

      United Tribes Technical College hosts the event and community organizations participate. Admission is free.

      Child Find T-shirts will be provided for all children. Door prizes will be awarded. All campus-community families are invited to attend.

      Child Find is a component of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. It requires states to identify, locate, evaluate, and refer all children with disabilities who are in need of intervention or special education services.

      By coordinating infant and toddler screening, Child Find provides the earliest possible identification of young children and their families who may benefit from early intervention or education services.
