Early Childhood Special Education

Early Childhood Special Education is a program that provides early intervention and preschool special education to young children, age birth to Kindergarten, who show developmental delays in the general areas of speech and language, large and fine motor skills, social and emotional behavior, cognitive and/or adaptive skills, or have vision or hearing loss.

After a child receives a formal evaluation to identify specific needs, trained ECSE teachers and specialists will work with the parents and child to develop his/her greatest potential. From birth to age three, these Special Education services are delivered to the child primarily in his/her home or chid care center. From age three to Kindergarten, children receive these services at Cuyuna Range Elementary School.

Parents have the right to request an educational evaluation if they have concerns about or suspect delays in their child's development. It is provided through the school district educational services at no cost to the family.
