Project Child Find
The Special Services Department of the East Hanover Township Schools, in compliance with Project Child Find, conducts evaluations, if warranted, for those children/students who may have learning problems in the areas of cognition, communication, social/emotional and motor functioning. The evaluations are available to preschool children aged 3-5, to school aged children 6-14, to highly mobile students such as migrant and homeless students, and to students who may have a disability although they are advancing from grade to grade.
Children/ students who are found eligible for special education and related services are entitled to a free and appropriate special education program.

Children develop at different paces, but there are developmental milestones that children should reach by certain times during the first three years of their lives. When children fail to reach these milestones, parents and other caregivers should consider contacting Early Intervention for an evaluation.
