BISMARCK (UTN) - The fifth annual United Tribes Child Find Fair is scheduled for Tuesday, October 28 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the James Henry Community Building gymnasium on the UTTC campus.

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 ages 5 – 21 that may be in need of intervention or special education services.
By coordinating early intervention screening, Child Find provides the earliest possible identification of children who may benefit from early intervention education services.
