Finding Children with Special Needs
The South Bergen school districts are participating in Child Find, a statewide program to locate and provide services for children ages 3 to 21 years who may have physical, mental, or emotional difficulties. Screening, professional guidance, and an education program, if needed, are available free through the local public schools.Parent concerns for children ages 3 to 5 might include a child that does not play, is unusually quiet or overactive, seems to have a vision or hearing problem, may have difficulty in learning to speak, walk, talk or toileting. If you have a concern about your child’s developmental milestones, contact the Child Study Team in your local district.
Parent concerns for children ages 5 to 21 might include significant lags in academic, social/emotional development, and/or physical difficulties.
For more information, please call the Child Study Team from your local school district of residence.
