• Early Childhood Special Education
     
    Children receive early childhood special education services based on ARD committee recommendations following evaluation. Preschool services are individualized to meet each child's needs. Students become eligible for services in on one of the following disability categories:
     
    Autism
    Deaf-Blindness
    Emotional Disturbance
    Intellectual Disability
    Multiple Disabilities
    Noncategorical Early Childhood
    Orthopedic Impairment
    Other Health Impairment
    Specific Learning Disability
    Speech or Language Disability
    Traumatic Brain Injury
    Visual Impairment
     
    Once a child becomes eligible for services, the ARD committee determines what support the individual student needs in order to access the PreKindergaten Curriculum Guidelines. Some service examples include Pre Kindergarten with Inclusion Support, Self-Contained Classroom, Resource, and Walk-In Speech Services.The Special Education Department works to collaborate with families who have preschool children with special needs.
