The Department of Student Services provides specialists in the areas of child study, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech and language, as well as school health services.

Child Study Services

Child study services are provided by a school psychologist, learning consultant, and social worker. The primary function of the child study team is to provide specialized assistance to classroom teachers regarding techniques, materials and programs. Services include consultation with parents and teachers, and testing. In addition, Child Study Team specialists have the resposibility for the determination of special education eligibility and the development and monitoring of Individualized Education Programs (IEP). Request for evaluations must be accompanied by a signature and can be dropped off at the Board of Ed or faxed - Fax 908-253-0515

School Health Services

School health services are provided by certified full-time school nurses, whose major focus is the prevention of illness and disability, and the early detection and correction of health problems. The school nurses are especially prepared and uniquely qualified in preventive health assessment and referral procedures, and emergency care.

Speech and Language Services

Speech and language services are provided by certified therapists. Services include consultation with parents and teachers, specialized assessments, programming and therapy designed to remediate the handicapping condition that adversely affects the child's educational performance.

Child Find Information

The Branchburg Township School District coordinates a Child Find Program to locate, identify and evaluate children residing within the community who may be in need of special education and are currently unserved. The effort is targeted at children from age three to 21, in non-public schools as well as children attending the Branchburg Township School District. The goal is to ensure that no child is missed, regardless of his or her current age or grade.
