Project Child Find

  • Some children are born with or may develop physical or mental conditions which may delay their normal growth and development and which may lead to an educational disability. Many of these problems can be helped or corrected if parents recognize the problem early and seek help from the state and their school district.

    For Children Younger Than 3:

    If your child should be crawling, walking or talking, but isn’t, Project Child Find can help. Project CHILD FIND is a free referral service and public awareness campaign to assist in the identification of unserved/underserved youth with a delay or disability from birth through twenty-one years of age. 

    Please view the Project Child Find Fact Sheet and information on this page. You can also call for information about resources and services for your child under age 3. Statewide, toll-free (888) 653-4463.

    For Children Aged 3 Through 21:

    The Jackson School District is committed to locating, identifying and evaluating all students living in Jackson who may be in need of special education and related services, regardless of the severity of their disabilities (in accordance with N.J.A.C. 6A: 143.3).

    If your child is experiencing physical, sensory, emotional, communication, cognitive, or social difficulties, please view the resources on this page and reach out to us if you believe your child may need assistance. Please contact the Jackson School District Child Study Team for more information at 732-833-4605.
