Child Study Team

The Bridgewater-Raritan Regional School District’s Child Study Teams are comprised of individuals from various disciplines -- School Psychologists, Social Workers, and Learning Disability Teacher Consultants. The CST members work closely with Speech and Language Therapists, Behavior Analysts, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Special Education Teachers to identify, evaluate, and develop an individualized education program that addresses the needs of a special education student.

All CST members are well versed in the best practice methods of assessment, resources available within the community, parental and children’s rights, board policy, special education law, and the role of each professional within the school district.
