It also develops and distributes information to the public about early intervention services and special education programs throughout New Jersey. Project Child Find can be reached toll free at 1-800-322-8174.

High Bridge residents who have concerns about the educational development of their child or whose child may be experiencing physical, sensory, emotional, communication, cognitive, or social difficulties; and also falls into one of the following age groups,
- A preschool child, including homeless and migrant, attaining age 3 within the next year
- A child, including homeless and migrant, between the ages of 3 and 5
- A school age child, including homeless and migrant, between the ages 6 and 21
should contact High Bridge Public Schools, Special Services Department, at 908-638-4512. A written referral for consideration of an evaluation is required. A meeting will be arranged with you to discuss your concerns and to decide if an evaluation is necessary. If that is the case, and the findings support special education services, implementation of these recommendations and program planning would be completed with you. Your written consent would be required before any such services would begin. All these services are provided at no cost to parents.
An additional source of assistance would be the Hunterdon County Supervisor of Child Study: Ms. Perkie Cannon, Hunterdon County Office of Education, 10 Court Street, Flemington, New Jersey 08822, or 908-788-1414.
