Project Child Find
The Carlstadt Public School district recognizes the importance of providing services to children with special needs through its Project Child Find efforts. CPS annually seeks to identify children, residing in the Borough of Carlstadt, from the ages of 3 through 21 who may be at risk for learning disabilities. Children in this age group who exhibit developmental delays in language, cognition, physical and/or emotional development, may be eligible for services from the public school. If your child is determined to be potentially eligible for services, the local public school district will evaluate your child. The evaluation is available to preschoolers; to highly mobile students with disabilities, such as migrant and homeless students; and to students who may have a disability. Children found to be eligible for special education and related services are entitled to free and appropriate special education programming and related services. Parents should contact the district, if they have concerns, when their child is 2 years six months of age.
If you suspect that your child has a disabling condition or you would like further information, please call the Office of Special Services at (201) 672- 3000 extension 3111.
Information is provided to parents of children from birth through 3 years of age regarding early intervention services.
