Special Education

  • Concerned about your child’s development? The CCIU offers a vast array of programs and services for eligible young children between the ages of three and five years old. Among these services is a full continuum of Preschool Special Education programs to meet the needs of children with special needs and developmental delays.

    Preschool Special Education Services are provided FREE of charge to children and their families who reside in Chester County, Pennsylvania.

    Parents may refer a child for screening and evaluation. If a child is found to need Preschool Special Education Services, an individualized education plan (IEP) is developed and the appropriate services are arranged. To arrange for an evaluation and screening, call 484-237-5150 or complete an online referral.

    Agency personnel, preschools, day care providers and medical practitioners may also support this process. Learn more about Early Childhood Provider Resources or contact us at the phone number listed below for more information.
