The blended program is a combination of typically developing and special education students. Each class has approximately 10 typically developing students and 3-5 students with special education services in the classroom. This is an inclusive preschool program staffed by a dually certified early childhood/special education teacher and one or two instructional assistants. A response to intervention model will be used to help struggling students who do not have an individualized education plan.
Related services, such as speech/language, OT/PT, and itinerant services, will be provided during this classroom time for eligible special education students.
