"Meeting Your Child’s Special Needs in an Early Childhood Program" Flyer for Families (IECSE)
Local school divisions provide special education services for young children, ages two to five, who have developmental delays or disabilities. Depending on the learning needs of the child, these services may be provided in high-quality early childhood care and education (ECCE) settings such as Virginia Preschool Initiative, Head Start, Mixed Delivery, child care, and community-based preschool programs. When special education services are provided in ECCE settings, Itinerant Early Childhood Special Education (IECSE) teachers from the school division travel to the classroom to implement the child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP). They partner with the child’s classroom teacher to support the child’s learning and participation with nondisabled peers.
The attached document "Meeting Your Child’s Special Needs in an Early Childhood Program: Itinerant Early Childhood Special Education Services," is meant for itinerant teachers to share with families of students receiving IECSE services in order to give a basic understanding of what this service model delivery looks like and the benefits of this type of collaboration.
