Child Find Article

Haddonfield school district wants to find some very special children…

Do you have or know of a special child ages 3 to 21 residing in the district that may have trouble keeping up with other children their same age? Are you aware of any children below age 3 with similar problems? If so, Haddonfield Public School’s Child Find can help.

All New Jersey Public Schools are required to provide programs for children ages 3 to 21 with developmental delays and/or special needs, and the Haddonfield school district has had very successful programs for years.

Other community agencies provide early intervention services for children from birth to three years. In order to continue to serve these children, the district must survey the community to find them. Haddonfield Public School’s Child Find is a community wide effort to find and help any children between the ages of 3 to 21 who are in need of specialized education programs and services.

Assessment, professional guidance and a specialized program, if needed, are all available at no cost to parents.
