Ages 3 to 21
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.
