    This is an important message for residents living in the

    East Rutherford School District.


    If you know of a preschool aged or other children up to age 21 with a developmental delay, disabled condition or learning problem, your local public school district can help. East Rutherford’s Child Study Team can offer help in diagnosing and providing intervention services for physical and/or learning problems that may limit your child’s success in school. All assistance is free, professional and confidential.

    In order to assist parents, a request for a full Child Study Team evaluation can be made through the Special Services Department by calling the office or sending in a written request with a concern(s) to the Child Study Team.  If you need further information, please call (201)-804-3100.

    Child Find

    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.
