Early Childhood Education (ECE)

On behalf of local school districts, SCOE offers a variety of learning experiences for preschoolers who are eligible for special education services. Children who are 3 to 5 years old can receive instruction geared to their individual needs. Special day classes, programs that build mobility skills, specialized services for young children on the autism spectrum, counseling and mental health services, and remedial speech and language instruction are among the many services available. Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) are developed for each student by a team that includes the child’s parents or caregivers and the ECE Special Education teachers, specialists, and administrators who will be working with the child. Service options include:

  • Special Day Classes serving a variety of student needs
  • Specialized Health Services Classrooms


Referrals to SCOE’s Special Education ECE Programs must be submitted by the student's district of residence.
