Early Childhood Special Education

Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE)

The Early Childhood Program (ECSE) is a free and public service provided by the Lebanon School District.  It provides services to children who are three to 5 years old who meet special education requirements. 

Children with disabling conditions are those who demonstrate significant delays in one or more of these areas:

  • vision/hearing
  • speech/language
  • intellectual functioning
  • overall development
  • rate of learning and/or
  • social/emotional development

The Early Childhood Special Education Program seeks to identify disabilities and delays as well as strengths for children.  To be eligible for the program, children must meet specific guidelines and criteria based on screening and evaluation procedures.  If the criteria are met, the staffing committee places the child into the program.

The services provided by the Lebanon Early Childhood Special Education Program include assessment personnel, classroom teachers, speech therapists, clerical staff, occupational and physical therapists, teacher assistants, and a nurse.  Consultant services for hearing impaired, visually impaired, and social/emotionally impaired students are also available.
