Early Childhood Special Education Services

The FCS Preschool Program located at Fairborn Primary School provides special education services through both itinerant services and centerbased preschool services. Both services are free to children 3-5 years of age who qualify for special education services.

Centerbased preschool classes: Our classes include both children with disabilities and typically-developing peers. An early intervention specialist and teacher assistant are responsible for each class of children. Children from the community are invited to register per our tuition and/or sliding scale fee schedule. Typically developing students must be toilet trained. Students with special needs are enrolled after an evaluation by the Special Education Department. Related therapy services, including but not limited to, speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, adapted physical education and transportation are provided to children as indicated in their IEP.

The preschool class meets Monday through Thursday for 2 1/2 hours, morning and afternoon. The morning session is from 9:00 a.m. -11:30 a.m. The afternoon session is from 12:45 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. No classes are held on Fridays. The teachers use this day for preschool screenings, assessments, IEP meetings, team meetings, program planning/development, parent conferences, and staff development activities.

Itinerant services: Itinerant special education services are available to identified students who are attending community preschool programs or whose parents prefer they receive services within their home. These services include, but are not limited to: direct services to the student, consultation and coaching to teachers/parents/support staff, technical assistance, and sharing of resources.
