Early Childhood Special Education
The ECSE-A classroom uses evidenced-based practices. These strategies have proven effective for developing skills with our students. Specific practices are matched to individual learning styles and unique needs. The classroom has a low student to teacher ratio. All related services are delivered within the classroom setting. The ECSE-A team collaborates closely with parents. Our team provides monthly parent training, including home visits to increase consistency between school and home.
The classroom has an established routine and uses visual supports to create a feeling of security and predictability in the environment, to promote communication, and to encourage engagement. The toys and other materials are organized to encourage and create increased opportunities for children to make self-initiated requests. The students have opportunities for group instruction during lunch, snack time, circle time, and craft activities.
