Does my child do the same things other children his or her age do? Some children need help walking, talking, seeing, hearing, or learning. Child Find is a legal requirement that schools find all children who have disabilities and who may be entitled to special education services. If you feel your child needs help, contact the professionals at your local school district or the Arkansas Special Education Resource Center (ASERC) at 1-800-482-8437. Special education services are available to all eligible children birth to 21, in both public and private, including children who are highly mobile, homeless and wards of the state. Early detection is the key to helping your child get off to a good start. Getting help today prepares your child for future success. For more information call the Mountain Home Public Schools Special Education Department at (870)425-1247. www.archildfind.org

**Access to federal funds for families in Arkansas with the Child Tax Credit** Families with no income or low income could get at least $3,000 per child with the Child Tax Credit, plus $1400 with the third stimulus payment - even if they have never filed taxes before (and if they have not yet already filed taxes this year). There is now an easy form for people to file on their mobile devices in 15 minutes or less in English or Spanish. People have until November 15 to sign up this year at GetCTC.org/arschools.
