    Welcome to PRDS!

    The Piscataway Regional Day School (PRDS)  provides specialized instruction to students with multiple disabilities in order to develop functional, independent skills to our student’s fullest potential potential.  We involve parents in a collaborative partnership to develop those skills both at school and at home.

    The PRDS has operated since 1984 and is staffed with experienced teachers, therapists and classroom aides. Student disabilities range from moderate to severe and include the areas of cognitive, neurological, medical and orthopedic disabilities. 

     

Visiting PRDS?

  • Visits by resident child study team members and parents/ guardians are always welcome.  School personnel or parents interested in more information are encouraged to contact the main office.
