Our Burbank Early Intervention Program is provided free-of-charge to Upper Arlington residents age three to kindergarten with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
We offer a continuum of services:
Itinerant services: Special education services provided by intervention specialists or related services personnel which occur in the setting where the child and caregiver are located. For example, some students receive monthly visits from an intervention specialist in their community-based preschool.
Preschool integrated classroom: Special education services are provided to children on IEPs in a center-based program. These classrooms are run by an Upper Arlington intervention specialist and two preschool aides. Each classroom has a maximum of eight children on IEPs and 9 who serve as peer models. Our classroom is currently offered 12:45-3:15 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
Public school preschool special education: Special education services are provided to children on IEPs in a center-based program. These classrooms are run by an Upper Arlington intervention specialist and preschool aide. Each classroom has a maximum of eight children on IEPs and a maximum of four peer models. We currently offer classes from 9:15-11:45 a.m. or 12:45-3:15 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
When a child qualifies for an IEP, the IEP team works together to determine the placement that is best for the child. The parent is a critical, valued member of the IEP team. The team aims for the child to receive special education services in the child’s Least Restrictive Environment.
