Preschool Special Education

Our preschool classrooms offer individualized programs for children who have been identified through the PPT (Planning and Placement Team) process as having a delay in one or more developmental areas. (See Preschool Screening & Assessment.) The staff consists of a special education teacher and a paraprofessional aide and tutors as needed. Additional services are provided from speech pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, adapted physical education teachers, a music therapist, social worker, and nurses.

Typical/Role Model children (children who have no identified delays) provide models for our children. (These children are chosen through a lottery in the spring, from children who live in the Danbury School District. To be considered please contact one of the preschool teachers in that (building.) There is a 50:50 ratio between identified and typical children. The classrooms use the CT Framework, Preschool Curricular Goals and Benchmarks. For classroom hours and schedule, ask your classroom teacher.
