Children With Special Needs Program

3-5 Pre-School Special Education Program

The program´s single point of entry is through your local school district.  This program is for children ages three to five who have developmental delays and disabilities. The purpose of this program is to maximize a child´s developmental and educational potential prior to the start of kindergarten. The county has administrative responsibilities for this program, which include coordinating transportation, processing all paperwork for the payment of services, and providing a municipal representative who sits on all committees of preschool special education.

Small child If your child received Early Intervention as an infant or toddler to age 3 and may still need special education and/or support services, your service coordinator can assist you with transition planning to the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) within your school district. If your child did not receive Early Intervention services but is having difficulty, you may make a referral to your district CPSE office (numbers listed below).

Services may include:

  • Educational and physical evaluations
  • Special education services
  • Physical, speech and occupational therapy
  • Transportation
