PRESCHOOL DISABLED PROGRAM:
The Preschool Disabled Program provides appropriate educational experiences for youngsters between the ages of 3 and 5 who experience developmental delays in the areas of speech and language, motor development, cognition and/or social/emotional functioning. The school district offers an educational program, related services, and door-to-door transportation at no cost to parents. The children are placed according to individual needs and developmental levels. In the preschool programs, they are encouraged to explore new materials, develop emerging skills, and interact in a social setting. Speech/language therapy and occupational therapy are offered as an integral part of the classroom program and/or on an individual basis as needed. If warranted, other services such as physical therapy may be initiated.
If you have any questions about either of the programs described above and feel that your child may require services, please call the Supervisor of the Child Study Team, Mrs. Cheryl Fairchild, at (856) 848-4300, ext. 4213.
