Project Child Find

Project Child Find is a free referral service and public awareness campaign to assist in the identification of unserved/underserved youth with a delay or disability from birth through twenty-one years of age. The Mount Ephraim Public School District provides eligible students with a Free and Appropriate Public Education beginning at age 3 years.

The Child Study Team conducts evaluations of children ages 3 to 21, free of charge. Children that are determined eligible can receive special education and related services through the District's department of special services.
