Early Childhood Special Education

What is Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE)?

Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE)

Early childhood education services are available for children who qualify as having an educational disability based on criteria outlined by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.  Early Childhood Special Education services can provide early intervention for young children beginning on their 3rd birthday until they are eligible for Kindergarten.  Areas of development considered during an evaluation include speech and language, gross and fine motor skills, social and emotional behavior, cognitive, and functional skills.  For students with an educational disability, a multi-disciplinary team of parents and educators will work to develop an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
