The Indian River County School District provides Exceptional Education Services for Pre-school age children in classroom settings. These classrooms accommodate fewer children per teacher ratio. Opportunities for inclusion with typical peers are provided as appropriate. Classroom teachers are certified and have additional staff to assist with the special needs of each child. Transportation is provided for all children who are placed in a full time classroom. Related services that may be included are: Occupational Therapy; Physical Therapy; Visual Therapy, and assistive technology.

Additionally children who only meet criteria for speech or language therapy can be served at satellite sites throughout the county. If the child is at a childcare center, transportation may be provided for the therapy sessions.

Children ages 3-5 benefit greatly from early intervention. These are precious years so don’t wait to ask for assistance.
