Project Child Find: Free Referral Service to Help Identify Youth with a Delay or Disability Birth-21

In accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Act and state law, the Englewood Board of Education is attempting to locate students age 3 to 21, including students attending non-public schools, who live within the grade K-12 public school district, who may be disabled or experiencing physical, sensory, emotional, communication, cognitive or social difficulties, for referral to the Child Study Team.  This includes migrant and homeless children.

How to Get Help

If you would like to request an evaluation for your child, send a written request for an evaluation to Englewood’s Department of Special Education at Englewood Public Schools, 274 Knickerbocker Road, Englewood, NJ 07631.  Or you can call 201-862-6258.  In the written request you must include your child’s name, age, address and suspected disability and your contact information.

After receiving your request, the district will contact you to set up a meeting.  At this meeting, you and the team will decide if an evaluation is needed and what evaluations will be included.  Evaluations, professional guidance and an educational program (if needed) are all available at no charge through the Englewood Public School District if you are a resident of the City of Englewood.
