The Exceptional Children's Preschool Program provides special education and related services for children with disabilities, as outlined by the child's Individual Education Program (IEP).
The services can be provided in a variety of settings, depending on the child's special educational needs. Many times the services are provided in the child's natural setting, such as at home, in daycare, preschool, or a Headstart program. The EC Preschool program has special education teachers, speech therapists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists that provide special education to children in these settings. Sometimes, children with intensive needs may need to receive their special education in a special class or within a GCS facility. The program also has designated sites in the county where parents can bring their children for specialized services. The type, frequency, and location of a child's special education services are determined by the child's IEP team.
If your child was recently diagnosed, or you suspect that your child may have a disability and in need of special education and/or related services, please contact The Exceptional Children's Preschool Program at 336.294.7473.
