ECSE Contact (Referral and Intake Information):
Amy Berge, Assistant Director of Special Services
Angie McGinnis, Coordinator
Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) provides special services
including evaluation and intervention to children from birth through age
six who demonstrate delays in cognitive, communication, motor,
self-help or personal-social areas of development. Together with
parents, the ECSE team will determine the appropriate evaluation
measures to determine the child's skill level.
Children from birth to age three who are eligible for services will
receive those services in a natural environment, such as home or daycare
by an ECSE teacher, occupational therapist or speech/language
clinician. Services and program goals will be outlined in a written
document developed by parents and ECSE staff.
A variety of classroom options will be provided for children ages 3
through age 6 to address each child's individualized needs. Services
and program goals to best meet each child's needs will be outlined in a
written document developed by parents and ECSE staff.
For further information, questions about your child's development or referrals, please contact Amy Berge at 651/480-7446.
