Early Childhood Special Education

EARLY CHILDHOOD SPECIAL EDUCATION (ECSE) is a program that provides early intervention and preschool special education to young children, age birth to kindergarten, who show developmental delay in the general areas of speech and language, large and fine motor skills, social and emotional behavior, cognitive and/or adaptive skills, or have vision or hearing losses.

After a child receives a formal evaluation to identify specific needs, trained ECSE teachers and specialists will work with the parents and child to develop his/her greatest potential. From birth to age three, these special education services are delivered to the child primarily in his/her home or childcare center. From age three to Kindergarten, children receive these services at a variety of sites including Washington Education Services Building, Warrior Early Learning Center and Nisswa School.

If you have any concerns about a child's development check out the Help Me Grow website for referral information.
