Child Find Ages 3 to 21

The Garfield School district is participating in Child Find, a statewide program to locate and provide services for children ages 3 to 21 years who may have physical, mental, academic and/or emotional difficulties. Screening, professional guidance and an education program, if needed, are available free through the local public schools.

Possible signs of learning disabilities include a child that does not play, is unusually quiet or overactive, or seems to have a vision/hearing problem or an academic problem. If you have concerns about your child's developmental milestones; learning to speak, walk, talk or to toilet, or suspect a learning disability, contact the Garfield Child Study Team at
973-340-5000 ext 2011 or 2012.
