The district offers free services to preschool aged children with special needs. Screening, professional guidance and an education program, if needed, are all available, free of charge, through the district. If you know of a child who may have a problem, please call Kristy Green, the Director of Special Services, at (856) 848-8200 x221. All information is strictly confidential.

Use the following developmental checklist to help you determine if your child could benefit from a special education program and seek help early.

Developmental Checklist

When a family is concerned that a child may be developmentally or educationally delayed, the first thing they want is more information. Professionals who work with the child and family may also need information - important information that can help ensure that services are in place to meet the child's educational needs.

The New Jersey State Department of Education has established Project CHILD FIND, a free public awareness and referral service, to assist families, professionals and interested individuals by identifying available early intervention, preschool disabilities and special education programs and services throughout New Jersey.
