Preschool Program

The half-day center based preschool program provides services to preschoolers with disabilities in public school buildings. Students are supported by a team of professionals, which includes a teacher, paraprofessional and may include occupational therapist, speech and language pathologist and physical therapist, as deemed appropriate by the IEP team. The program is designed to provide child-centered enriched learning activities that are age-appropriate and aligned with the Ohio Early Childhood Content Standards.
