    When a child is suspected of having a disability, Eligibility Coordinators supervise the Child Study Committee, Eligibility, and Reevaluation processes for the school system and consult with school staff at every school.  Coordinators chair Eligibility Committee meetings for children ages 2 through 22 who are referred through the Special Education and Section 504 eligibility processes.  Eligibility meetings are held to determine whether or not children qualify for special education services.  Coordinators facilitate the determination of a disabling condition under IDEA 2004 or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 by working with a team of administrators, teachers, related service staff, diagnosticians, and parents.  Coordinators also conduct ongoing training for administrators and school staff as well as provide support through individual school and county-wide in-services.  If you have concerns regarding your child's educational performance, please contact your child's school. 
    If you have concerns regarding your preschool aged child's development (ages 2 through 5), please contact Loudoun County Public Schools' Child Find Center at 571-252-2180 to schedule a free developmental screening.
