BISMARCK (UTN) – United Tribes hosted the 10th Annual Child Find Fair November 1 in the James Henry Community Building gymnasium. It was the closing event of United Tribes Red Ribbon Week, promoting alcohol-free and drug-free events for youngsters and students.

Fun was the leading activity, supplemented by important information about early intervention services including screening, development, safety, parent resources and nutrition.

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.

“It didn’t hurt a bit,” said Carter Black (8), TJES grade 3, when tattooed with a frog by Allison Mahoney of Prevent Child Abuse North Dakota at the Child Find Fair. Carter’s temporary, stick-on tattoo promoted the “building of strong families.” DENNIS J. NEUMANN<>United Tribes News
