    The Atlantic City Board of Education welcomes all parents/guardians of children with known

    or potentially handicapping conditions to contact our Child Study Teams. The purpose of ‘Child Find” activities is to provide a free referral service and help families of preschoolers, ages three through five, concerned about their child’s development to access services. Parents or knowledgeable professionals in the community with concerns should contact our child study team to initiate this process.

    Evaluations may be performed by trained school professionals (with parental consent) and any copies of current evaluations will be reviewed to determine eligibility for services. Should your child need educational or therapeutic services then our CST members would develop an appropriate Individualized Educational Plan (IEP).
