Services for Preschool Students

District Comprehensive Support Services (DCSS) classrooms are designed for students who require intensive services and supports.

Important Notice:

Placement in a Developmental Preschool Classroom must be determined by your child’s IEP Team.  

Developmental Preschool Classrooms

Developmental Preschool Classrooms provide intensive services to children with significant educational needs. Children in these classrooms receive developmentally appropriate services based on their individual needs as defined by their Individualized Education Program (IEP). Students may attend morning or afternoon sessions five days a week.

The Peer Model Program is available at each location housing Developmental Preschool Classrooms. The Peer Model Program provides an integrated environment in which typically developing students (serving as peer models) and students with disabilities interact and learn together.

Intensive Global Support Preschool Classrooms

Intensive Global Support Preschool Classrooms are designed to meet the needs of students who demonstrate significant needs. These classrooms offer a low student/teacher ratio in order to address the unique needs of the students.

Social Communication Support Preschool Classrooms

Social Communication Support Preschool Classrooms are designed for students who demonstrate significant social communication deficits resulting in a need for high level supports.  Children receive preschool educational services in an extended day. The extended part of the day is focused on individualized instruction with an emphasis on developing functional communication and self-regulation skills.
