Eligibility

The Committee on Preschool Special Education determines if your child is eligible or ineligible to receive special education programs or services.

If your child is found to present with a certain diagnosed condition or a great enough developmental delay that meets the New York State
eligibility requirements for preschool special education services through the CPSE, then your child will be determined as an eligible "preschool student with a disability". The CPSE team will develop an Individualized Educational Program or IEP for your child that will include annual goals and the approved recommendation of appropriate services and/or programs to meet your child's educational needs. All services are to take place in what is considered the least restrictive environment for your child.
