Special Needs Preschool

The Special Need Preschool Program is a federally mandated service. An amendment to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) makes available a range of educational opportunities for children with moderate and severe disabilities who are three to five years old. The program is offered through the Jasper County Charter System, and children are served at the Jasper County Preschool or through a community-based approach. All services are voluntary for this program.

Any Jasper County child age three, four, or five who is experiencing significant difficulties or delays in development, whether physical, mental, or emotional, can be referred for service. Areas of concern can include difficulties in developing speech and language skills, thinking skills, motor skills, adaptive skills, or social skills. An assessment will be conducted to determine if your child qualifies for special education services through the Special Education Preschool Program.
