 Project Child Find
The Millburn Township Public School District has a responsibility to locate, identify and evaluate all resident students with disabilities who are in need of special education and related services, including students with disabilities attending nonpublic schools and those deemed to be homeless but remaining the responsibility of The Millburn Township Public School District. 
 
The school district locates, identifies and evaluates, when appropriate, children below school-entry age (3-5) and school-age children.  Upon written request, the district will conduct an initial identification meeting for any resident child to determine whether a referral for evaluation for special education and related services is appropriate.  Such a request may be made in writing to Jennifer Sowa, Director of Special Services, Millburn Township Public Schools, 434 Millburn Avenue, Millburn, New Jersey 07041. 
 
The school district provides special education and related services for children ages 3 to 21.  Information for children with potential disabilities or those with disabilities from birth to three is available through Project Child Find, (a service established by the N.J. Department of Education through IDEA, Part B funds from the U.S. Department of Education)
 
 
Dyslexia and Other Reading Disabilities
 
 

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin.  It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities.  These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction.  Secondary consequence may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge. (N.J.A.C. 6A:14-1.3) (International Dyslexia Association)
