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
