Project Child Find - West Milford Township School District

Do you believe your child is experiencing difficulty with learning or development?  

Our Special Education programs are designed for identified students ages 3 -21, with a focus on developing and achieving individual student learning objectives and goals as well as those of our rigorous curriculum.  

If you are concerned your child might have an unidentified disability which is interfering with academic or emotional growth and progress, consider the following questions:

  • Is your child struggling to learn new concepts despite his or her best efforts and your support?
  • Does your child avoid tasks that appear too challenging or give up without trying, such as those involving fine motor skills such as writing or art?
  • Does your child often misread social cues or otherwise lack social skills?
If you believe you are in need of assistance, please reach out to your child's teacher or building administrator.  You may request evaluation by our Child Study Team.   

  • After receiving your written request, the Child Study Team has twenty (20) days to participate in a meeting with parents or guardians.
  • At this meeting, you and the team will decide if an evaluation is necessary. 
  • If an evaluation is warranted, specific appropriate evaluation methods will be discussed.
