• Early Learning for Children with Disabilities

    Early childhood special education services are available to eligible children between the ages of three and five years old.  With parent permission, evaluations are completed by an assessment team that includes the parents, preschool teacher, and school specialists.  School specialists may include:

    • speech-language pathologist
    • school psychologist
    • occupational therapist
    • physical therapist
    Eligibility for early childhood special education services, the specific services needed, and the location of the services, will be determined by the case conference committee, which also includes the child’s parents.  Most young children with disabilities are serviced within our inclusive preschool classrooms. We also provide direct speech and language therapy for young children at their elementary school. MCCSC also provides special education services to children enrolled in the local Head Start programs.
