- Who is eligible for early childhood special education?
Children three to six years of age who are identified with a disability. The children may demonstrate deficits in any of the following areas: early learning, speech and language, social/behavior, motor (fine or gross), or adaptive skills.
- Where are the early childhood special education services provided?
Professionals working with three- to six-year-old children with special education needs provide an array of special education services at school, home, Head Start, childcare, and other community settings. Our goal is to provide services with typically developing peers to the maximum extent appropriate.
- When and how are these services provided?
Frequency and type of special education services are determined and outlined in your child’s IEP. Special education and related services may include consultation with staff, direct services to the child, itinerant services, training related to the disability, and other services that are identified by the IEP.
