The Early Childhood Special Education Program provides an individualized approach to instruction for children birth to school age. The child must demonstrate a developmental delay or disability to be eligible.
Developmental skills are pre- and post-tested to show gains while in the program. The program stresses:
1. Concrete, manipulative, and sensory teaching methodologies, including movement.
2. Sequenced developmental approach to learning.
3. Home visits to develop activities in the home routine to support learning.
4. The belief that parents can help reinforce learning in the home and school, a parent/school partnership.
The infant and toddler components are located at Central Services with all services to infant and toddlers delivered in their natural environment.
All Early Childhood Special Education locations provide for interdisciplinary team planning, interagency involvement as appropriate, transition activities to prepare for the next program needs and parent involvement activities.
