Child Find is a part of Special Education Pupil Appraisal Department housed at J. B. Lafargue Special Education Center.
Any individual, age 2 years 9 months to 21 years old who is not in public school, may be referred for a screening and then a possible evaluation if he or she appears to be at risk with overall development in one or more of the following areas: cognitive skills, communication, motor, sensory (vision, hearing), or social emotional.
Referrals can be made by the parent/guardian contacting the Child Find Coordinator
An appointment will be made for the parent and child to meet with a Social Worker, Adaptive Physical Education Teacher, School Psychologist or Educational Diagnostician, Speech Pathologist, Occupational and/or Physical Therapist if needed.
Upon completion of the assessment a written report will be reviewed and a copy given to the parent with specific recommendations to address any concerns that were noted about their child.
The parent or legal guardian is a part of every step.
|The classification of exceptionalities is determined by specific guidelines and criteria established in the Pupil Appraisal Handbook issued by the Louisiana State Department of Education|
|If you feel your child is at risk, call 442-0085, and ask forChild Find Intake Secretary.|

Gifted Program Coordinator
The New Horizons Program will:
Establish a psychologically secure environment for the development of intra- and inter-personal relationships.
Implement a differentiated educational program which will enable each student to achieve his/her maximum intellectual potential.
Provide opportunities and resources necessary for each student to develop his area of giftedness.
The New Horizons Program in Rapides Parish is primarily divided into two components: enrichment and academic. Both are child-centered where the teacher acts as a facilitator.
- The major impetus of the enrichment system is based on the development of cognitive and affective skills.
- These skills are introduced and reinforced through strategies appropriate for gifted students and differentiated teaching methods.
- Children in pre-school, kindergarten, first, second, and third grade participate in an enrichment program.
- The thrust of the academic program is acceleration through differentiated teaching techniques and curriculum compacting.
- Both vertical and horizontal enrichment activities are included in the academic element.
- Students in grades four through twelve are involved in an academic program.
