• Exceptional Children Services Ages 3-5

    Exceptional Children Services ages 3-5 are designed for children with disabilities who are in need of specially designed instruction. Our goal is to provide these children, at an early age, a foundational base of support, services, and skills they need to be successful as they move toward kindergarten. Children can be served in a variety of settings to provide the least restrictive environment needed for their individual success.

    Children must be evaluated to determine eligibility.

    The EC Preschool Services Department:

    • Creates individualized plans
    • Provides developmentally appropriate services
    • Ensures student progress
