 About  

The Early Childhood Special Education program wants to be a part of helping you and your child along this exciting journey of learning and preparing for kindergarten. We have speech/language pathologists and developmental teachers to screen and deliver professional and appropriate therapy for your child if needed.  Most of the activities we do are repeated many times as the year progresses and with each repetition it is our hope that your child will continue to learn and progress in all areas. We have iPads that we use to make learning fun and as a reward.  We also use positive praise to encourage each step of your child’s learning.  The Early Childhood Special Education staff are here to answer your questions and be a part of the team to develop educational strategies and speech/language therapy if needed for your child.  

Join us...we make learning fun!
