Committee on Preschool Education (CPSE)

This service offers multi-disciplinary evaluations based on suspected developmental delays and educational needs of a child. Also provided are special education and/or related services (therapy) for eligible children, 3–5 years of age. Children are referred through their local school district, and the Committee on Preschool Special Education will meet to determine eligibility.
This committee makes decisions about services for children with disabilities between the ages of 3 and 5 years of age. The committee is chaired by a local school district administrator. The committee members, including the child’s parents and early childhood teacher (if applicable) consider eligibility using a formal evaluation as a base.
If you have concerns about your child’s development or educational needs, and would like to refer your child to the Committee on Preschool Special Education to determine eligibility for special services, it is recommended that you contact your school district in which you reside to begin the evaluation process
