Leaps and Bounds
Leaps and Bounds provides special education and related services to children ages three and four, and to those children whose fifth birthday falls after September 1, who experience any significant developmental delay. Participation in the preschool special education program is voluntary and is provided at no cost to parents. It extends to all eligible preschool students the same educational opportunities and procedural safeguards offered school-age students with disabilities. The program is staffed by certified teachers who provide a range of services through three different delivery models: facility-based, community-based and home based.
Services may include individual screening and assessment, educational programming, parent involvement and training, community awareness, referrals to other agencies, family instruction through home visits, and instructional assistance to prekindergarten childcare programs.
To make a preschooler referral for Special Education, please call 267-4229.
