Professor, Program Coordinator
The Preschool Special Education/Early Intervention program prepares graduates to work with infants, toddlers, and preschool children with developmental delays and disabilities and their families. Family-centered early intervention services (birth-three) are primarily provided in family homes. Team members from various disciplines partner with the parent(s) and infant or toddler to enhance the child’s development and inclusion within family routines. Preschool special education teachers work in inclusive or specialized preschool programs as a classroom teacher, co-teacher, or itinerant support specialist who teams with general education preschool teachers and families to provide specialized individualized instruction and support for children with delays or disabilities within general education preschool curriculum and learning activities.
