Special Education Preschool Programs

Preschool Programs for 3-5-Year-Old Children

Designated Instruction and Services (DIS) programs are tailored to cater to the diverse needs of young children with special requirements. These programs offer a comprehensive range of services to address various challenges faced by students. One prominent facet of these programs is the provision of Special Day Classes, which are specifically designed to accommodate students with a spectrum of conditions such as delayed cognitive abilities, language delays, autism, physical disabilities, hearing impairment, and learning disabilities.

One notable feature of these programs is their emphasis on fostering inclusive environments. Special Day Classes facilitate interaction between students with special needs and their non-disabled peers. This inclusive approach aims to create an environment where all students can learn and grow together.

Moreover, DIS programs recognize the importance of involving parents in the education process. Hence, each program incorporates parent-education components, ensuring that parents are well-informed and actively engaged in supporting their child's development.

The array of services offered is extensive, covering a broad spectrum of needs. Early Intensive Behavior Intervention (EIBI) is provided to address behavioral challenges at an early stage. Additionally, Adaptive Physical Education, Speech and Language Services, Occupational Therapy, Parent Education, and various related services are available as needed.

Furthermore, DIS programs extend their reach through collaboration with district State Preschool programs and Redwood Regional Center. This collaborative effort enables the provision of early intervention and prevention services, ensuring that children receive the necessary support and resources from the outset.

In essence, Designated Instruction and Services programs are dedicated to creating an inclusive and supportive educational environment for children with special needs, offering a range of services to address their unique requirements and promote their overall development.
