Child Study Team (CST)

The CST, headed by the Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant (LDTC), identifies, evaluates, and plans individualized education programs (IEPs) for students experiencing learning difficulties. The team also includes a social worker and a school psychologist. The school nurse provides medical information and hearing and vision screening, if needed.

The CST provides appropriate consultation and monitoring services for students, parents, and staff and determines pupil eligibility for special education and related services in accordance with federal and state requirements through an Intervention and Referral Process. Services at our school can include individual or small group academic instruction by a special education teacher either in or out of the classroom, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech services.

The team is regulated under the provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 1997 and N.J.A.C. 6A:14.
