Child Find
The South Bergen school districts, of which Hasbrouck Heights is a member, participate in Child Find, a statewide program to locate and provide services for children ages 2-21 years who may have physical, mental, learning or emotional difficulties. Screening, professional guidance and an education program, if needed, are provided free through the local public schools.
Parent concerns for children ages 3-5 might include a child that does not play, is unusually quiet or overactive, seems to have a vision or hearning problem or may have difficulty in learning to speak, walk, self help skills, etc.
Parent concerns for children 5-21 might include significant lags in academic, social/emotional development and/or physical difficulties.
