The Primary Goal in the Early Childhood Special Education program is to prepare our children to function at an age appropriate level when they attend kindergarten. We want to see all our children reach their highest potential when they enroll in public school. The following skills are some of the objectives we work on in our Pre-K program:

  • Recognize their first name
  • Print first name
  • Identify opposite concepts
  • Count to five
  • Recite the alphabet
  • State address and city of residence
  • Identify self by using first and last name
  • Identify shapes
  • Identify colors
  • Work on beginning sounds
  • Cutting on a line
  • Coloring within the lines
  • Days of the week
  • Months of the year
  • Following directions
  • Directional concepts
  • Classifying and grouping skills
  • State parent's names
  • Answering and questioning techniques
  • Expanding vocabulary

 

What is Early Intervention?

Many of our students test out of the Early Intervention program after the first year due to the fact that the parents recognized a need for Early Intervention and the children got the needed one-on-one instruction to prepare them for kindergarten. One of our former students who received early intervention services, has gone on to elementary school and is in the Gifted and Talented Program.

Before the students reach the Pre-K classroom, we work on Early Intervention skills. These skills are classified as Early Intervention objectives:

  • Toilet training
  • Feeding with a spoon
  • Learning to play with others
  • Dressing without supervision
  • Behavior modification skills
  • Learning how to play with toys
  • Following simple instructions
  • Learning to communicate
  • Hand eye coordination
  • Learning to crawl, walk and balance.
