NAVIGATING A CHANGING WORLD THROUGH EXCELLENCE AND INNOVATION

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.

 

Parents who have questions about the eligibility of their child are encouraged to contact:
 
Morris Plains School District
Department of Special Services
Mr. Mark Maire, Child Study Team Supervisor
973-538-1650 
 

New Jersey's Early Intervention System provides services for infants and toddlers (from birth to the child's third birthday) who have developmental delays or disabilities as well as support for the families.  For more information, please access the link below:
