• CHILD STUDY TEAM SERVICES

    The Child Study Team (CST) is a group of professionals who provide consultative and evaluative services to teachers and parents with regard to students who are experiencing school related difficulties. 

    Who are members of the Child Study Team?

    The members of the Child Study team as determined by the NJ Department of Education are a school psychologist, a learning disabilities teacher consultant (LDT/C), a school social worker, and at times a Speech and Language Therapist.  

    What are the roles of the CST members?

    The school psychologist has expertise in a child's level of cognitive and conceptual development.  In addition, the psychologist is concerned with the emotional status of the student, and how both internal and external factors may affect behavior and performance in school.  

    The learning consultant (LDT/C) is trained to determine the learning styles of students, to determine specific achievement levels in a variety of content areas, and to recommend specific teaching methods and strategies that may benefit a student.  

    The social worker has expertise in assessing the student relative to the family, school and community. This professional generally gathers information concerning the student's health, familly and school history as it pertains to the student's current school functioning.  The social worker also coordinates community resources on behalf of students and their families.  

    The speech and language therapist provides speech and language therapy to students as well as consults with teachers regarding speech and language development.  The speech and language therapist role is defined in our speech and language section in more detail.
