- Is your child struggling to learn new concepts taught in school?
- Is your child failing one or more academic subjects despite his or her best efforts and your support?
- Does your child avoid tasks that appear too challenging or give up without trying?
- Does your child often misread social cues or otherwise lack social skills?
- Does your child avoid fine motor tasks, writing, art class?
If you answered yes to several of these questions, please call the Robbinsville Schools Department of Special Services at (609) 632-0944 (Ext. 4411) for information.
What do I say when I call?
I am concerned that my child has learning difficulties and I am wondering if he or she needs an evaluation.
What can I expect?
You will be asked to put your request in writing and send it to the Child Study Team. After receiving your written request, the Child Study Team has twenty days to have a meeting with you, the parents or guardians. At this meeting, you and the team will decide if an evaluation is needed and what the evaluation will include.
What if I want to talk to another parent?
Some parents find it helpful to talk with another parent who has been through the evaluation process. If you would like the name and number of another parent from your local school who is willing to speak with you, please feel free to ask the Child Study Team members.
