Preschool Special Education Services

Preschool Special Education Services are designed for children ages 3 to 5 with disabilities and in need of specially designed education.  The goal of the program is to provide the support these children need at an early age, so by the time they enter Kindergarten, they have the support, services and skills they need to be successful.
