"As a parent, pondering the day when your child will first begin using the internet can be an ominous and stressful thing to consider. The internet is one of the few remaining spaces where people from around the world can easily engage with each other and create new content without large amounts of regulation. Browsing the web, therefore, can sometimes be unpredictable for people of all ages. The facts regarding children and teens using the internet are sobering." Please see attached link.

Frankford Township School offers services to disabled children ages 3 to 21 using a multidisciplinary approach. Children who are having significant difficulty in school may be referred to the Child Study Team by parents or appropriate school personnel. Children ages 3-5 who are experiencing a physical, sensory, emotional, communication, cognitive or social difficulty or a measurable developmental impairment may require special education and related services. The term Preschool Disabled means there is an identified, disabling condition and /or measurable developmental impairment that requires special education and related services.
If the parents are concerned about their child’s program, they should feel free to discuss a referral to the Child Study Team with their child’s teacher, guidance counselor, or administrator.
