The Preschool Special Education Program is a Federal and State entitlement program that provides appropriate therapeutic and educational services for children ages three and four with developmental delays. Eligibility is determined by multi-disciplinary evaluations, and services are based upon individual child's needs as recommended by their School District's Committee on Preschool Special Education.
The program offers educational services including speech, physical and other therapies, special education teachers and classroom programs. Preschool Special Education services strive to minimize adverse affects of a developmental delay on a child's ability to learn. There is no direct cost to families for these services. To refer a child to the Preschool Special Education Program, call the child's school district and ask for the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) chairperson.
