Early Childhood Special Education Services

(Formerly Preschool Programs for Children with Disabilities or PPCD)

Early Childhood Special Education Services - ECSES

Early Childhood Special Education Services (ECSES) strives to create a desire for learning in the young child. Children are given opportunities to work in small groups as they develop a readiness for formal educational tasks. They are taught compensatory skills for areas of need and guided through developmental tasks promoting each child's ability to manage his/her unique own behaviors and social interactions within his peer group. Each child is recognized for his/her unique differences in growth and development, capacity to learn, interest and creativity.

- Age three through five years
- Disability as identified through assessment

Program Goal: To provide educational opportunities focused on enhancing language communication skills and to assist the child in the actualization of his/her self worth in the relationship to individual strengths and needs.
