What is a Developmental Preschool?
A developmental preschool is an inclusive school program for children that have a diagnosed disability.
Any child that has been screened and evaluated through their district’s preschool and diagnosed with a disability is eligible for services. Developmental preschools are free if your child qualifies and if room is available. Check your local school district for more information and how to sign your child up for a screening.
