    Project Child Find

     

    Project Child Find is a free referral service and public awareness campaign to assist in the identification of unserved/underserved youths ages 3-21 years old who may be disabled due to physical, sensory, emotional, communication, cognitive or social difficulties. The public school system provides services for preschool children with a disability between the ages of three and five. Preschoolers who demonstrate delays in the development of motor, communication, social-emotional or cognitive skills may be eligible for special education and related services through the home school district.

     

    For children 3-21 years of age, the school district provides free appropriate public education (FAPE) for eligible students. 

    Parents and guardians who have questions about the eligibility of their child are encouraged to contact:
    Mrs. Megan Gropp
    Director of Special Services
    973-531-9586 x525
