Early Childhood Intervention
(Children sitting in a circle looking up with hands out together shaped like a heart)
Early Childhood Special Education : AACPS has specialized classes throughout the county located in numerous elementary schools that house ECSE programs. The goal of an ECSE program is to provide intensive instruction in relatively small classes with a special education teacher, teacher assistant and speech language pathologist. Children in these classes have moderate to severe delays and need to focus on basic language and cognitive concepts as building blocks for academic success later in life. ECSE programs run for approximately half of a school day with sessions in both the morning and afternoon. Bus transportation is provided to and from school. Many schools with ECSE programs also have a pre-K class; these co-located classes provide an opportunity for children to engage in both environments. For more information, contact the Early Childhood Special Education Specialists.
