The Preschool Special Needs Program is a federally-mandated service. An amendment to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) makes a range of educational opportunities available to children with moderate to severe disabilities who are aged three to five years old. The program is operated by the Cherokee County School District. Children are served at one of several school sites in the county, through home-based, and/or community-based programs.
Any Cherokee County child age three to five who is experiencing significant difficulties or delays in development, whether physical, mental, or emotional, can be referred for service. Areas of concern can include difficulties in developing speech and language skills, thinking skills, adaptive skills, motor skills, or even social skills. A play-based assessment will be conducted to determine if your child qualifies for the Preschool Special Needs Program.
For information on our Preschool Special Needs Program and the corresponding assessments, please call 770-721-8562 or email   We look forward to working with you and child.
