In order to identify preschool children whose serious problems may lead to difficulties in school, the Hackettstown School District will assess any children 3-5 years of age and who are suspected to have a disability. This assessment is free, and all information will be kept confidential. The district may be of help if parents think their child exhibits one or more of the following signs: difficulty seeing or hearing, difficulty walking, running or manipulating small objects, serious health problems or documented birth handicaps, delays in acquiring language, significant speech problems, excessive immaturity or anxiety, significant difficulties paying attention or listening.
Parents who have concerns may call the Director of Special Services at 908-852-8550 Ext. 242.
