    Preschool options are designed to offer a continuum of services in an effort to meet a variety of student developmental needs:

    Therapy Services Only

    Individual or small group services are provided to eligible children who can make progress in one or two developmental areas when provided with one to two therapy sessions a week. The sessions occur at local schools.

    Itinerant Services

    Services provided to students enrolled in a childcare/preschool located within a Seattle school or Head Start who can make progress in that environment with the support of a Special Education Teacher working within that classroom context one to two times per week.

    Developmental Preschool

    Preschools provide morning or afternoon sessions Monday through Thursday for 2 1/2 hours. They provide high quality early childhood environments where activities are designed by Special Education Teachers and Therapists to meet the individual developmental needs of students. Typically developing preschoolers from the community are included in many of the programs.

    Extended Day Services

    Students with autism who are enrolled in a preschool program may be considered by the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team for more intensive services in addition to their preschool day in order to accomplish specific goals in their IEP.
