Children's Update
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, services across New Jersey have adapted to meet safety requirements issued by Governor Murphy. As the state begins to modify restrictions, we want to ensure that children with disabilities and their families are aware of any updates about the services they are receiving.

As of June 15th, 2020, New Jersey has begun Stage 2 of Governor Murphy's multi-stage reopening plan which will allow in-person services to take place with specific safety restrictions in effect. State agencies have begun to provide public health guidelines for summer camps, childcare centers, and Early Intervention services. This e-newsletter will provide updates for families regarding the aforementioned services.
NJDOH Releases Next Steps for Early Intervention Services
The Department of Health has provided an update for Early Intervention Services during the COVID-19 pandemic. This update includes policies for evaluations and assessments, compensatory services, IFSPs, and service environments.
NJDOH Summer Camp Standards
The New Jersey Department of Health has announced that as of July 6th, youth day camps will be permitted to open, pursuant to Executive Order 149. Camps will provide a much needed childcare option for families across the state. Families should be aware that although camps have been permitted to open, many will remain closed for Summer 2020.
