Early Childhood Special Education Services
Early intervention is critical for the success of young children with developmental delays. We promote a safe, nurturing, nonrestrictive educational environment while working collaboratively with staff, family and community. Our program is designed to provide a positive experience to all children and their families, where economic, cultural, and educational diversity is valued.
Children identified with disabilities may participate in early intervention through our Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) program. This program includes a range of options which may be implemented by appointment-based services, in a community preschool setting (limited availability), or for children demonstrating significant delays, in our integrated preschool with peer models. The frequency and duration of the services are determined by the IEP team and based on individual student needs.

Research has shown that early intervention often decreases the amount and intensity of future services and increases success in school.
