Pre-School Special Education

Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

Stottlemyer Preschool offers special education support via home based and classroom programs.

Early Childhood Service (ECS)

The ECS program is for special education eligible students from birth to the age of three years. Full participants are supported by staff in the student's home for one session per week and attend group sessions once a week at the Stottlemyer Early Childhood and Family Development Center. Developmentally appropriate activities in the natural environments are the basis of the curriculum for this program. This program is two hours per week (one hour of home visit, and one hour of group minimum).

Early Childhood Programs (ECP)

The ECP district program is for special education eligible students aged three to five years old. This classroom program is developmentally appropriate and strives to prepare all students for the rigors and relationships of kindergarten. This is a half-day, five day per week classroom program.

The Wayne RESA Western Region inclusive Physical or Otherwise Health Impairment (POHI) and Autism Impairment (AI) classroom programs are integrated with the district ECP classroom program. Adaptive aquatics is offered to program participants.

Speech

Stottlemyer offers speech therapy for special education eligible students on an individual or small group basis, both in support of students participating in one of the preschool classroom programs or as an itinerant drop-in service.

For those students determined to need more intensive speech intervention, the district operated a speech classroom program based upon the ECP service delivery model.

Severe Multiple Impairment Classroom (SXI)

Stottlemyer also houses the Wayne RESA Southwestern Region classroom program for students with Severe Multiple Impairment (SXI). This program typically focuses on activities of daily living and includes adaptive aquatics, and community based instruction (CBI), that is appropriate for the age, skills, and interest levels of these students.

Transition

It is strongly encouraged that students transitioning to the elementary school programs visit their neighborhood school or basic classroom program to ease the anxiety of the level change. Together, we will make these life experiences positive for the student and her/his parents.
