Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE)
The Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) is a comprehensive continuum of services for children, ages 3-5 who have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) with identified delays in one or more of the five developmental areas (i.e., cognition, communication, self-help, fine/gross motor, social/emotional). Services begin on the child’s 3rd birthday. ECSE services service options may include “drop-in” speech therapy, in-class support, or specialized instruction. Decisions about the child’s program are made by the ARD committee and are based on the child’s assessment information.
