Students with Special Needs
Intervention services or Individualized Education Program (IEP) are tailored to meet the individual needs of the child. students who have special needs in one of the following developmental areas based on the state and federal guidelines: Language, Cognition, Motor Skills, Adaptive Behavior and Social-emotional development. To receive preschool services as a student with a disability, children must be identified through a thorough evaluation prior to placement. There is no cost for preschool services for students that are identified as having a disability. Transportation for special needs students is provided. Our preschool is supported by a team of highly qualified and licensed/certified professionals, which may include a teacher, paraeducators, occupational therapist, speech and language pathologist, and physical therapist as deemed appropriate by an IEP team.
Students with disabilities benefit from small group instruction in a supportive environment that includes interacting with typically-developing preschool peer models. Typically-developing peer models are accepted on a limited basis. Tuition for typically-developing students is $110 per month. Transportation for typically-developing students is not provided.
For students that need early intervention services but will not attend our classroom setting, itinerant preschool special education services are available to assist children in their home, preschool or childcare setting. Our staff will work collaboratively with district personnel and families to support transition planning and develop and implement Individualized Education Program goals designed to meet the unique needs of preschoolers with a disability. Services are provided in the child's natural setting by a certified Early Childhood Intervention Specialist at a minimum of four hours per month.
