Special Education Preschool is an early intervention program that provides developmentally appropriate learning experiences to address the fundamental needs of students to acquire basic skills and social competence. Students in this program have specific identified developmental delays which may be in the domains of cognitive, language, motor and/or social-emotional functioning. A cornerstone of the program is the integration of students without indentified special needs who provide modeling of age-appropriate skills in all areas of development. This is one of many methodologies, which we use, that research has proven to be an effective strategy for educating children. All of the programs at the Trumbull Early Childhood Education Center are taught by highly qualified teachers either certified in special education, early childhood education or dually certified in early childhood/special education. They are supported by a transdisciplinary team which includes the nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech/language pathologist, school psychologist, social worker, and paraprofessionals. Bus transportation is provided by the town of Trumbull for students with identified special needs.
