Preschool Special Services
We provide developmental, speech, occupational, and physical therapies to children ages 3 to 5 in cooperative-area preschools.
The preschools and Great Rivers ESC are in a collaborative agreement to screen, refer, evaluate, teach, and maintain due process records on children identified with preschool special needs. Great Rivers Preschool Staff is trained to screen and evaluate children who could have developmental delays in the areas of cognition, communication, fine motor, gross motor, social, self-help, articulation and language. For children who do not attend preschool, we have therapy rooms for on-site therapeutic services.
