FAQs

Q: How are services at North Jersey Outreach different from services offered through a school district?

A: North Jersey Outreach believes in early intervention and provides tailored in-home services in which parents and caretakers receive training and support from certified instructors and trained paraprofessionals.

For older children, North Jersey Outreach augments the school district’s program and provides ongoing tutoring services and therapies as needed.
