Special Education Services
The Family Center Home & Community Based Program provides special education and therapeutic services to children with developmental or educational challenges. The program includes three main components:
- SEIT Program: Our Special Education Itinerant Teachers (SEITs) work with children who require extra support in general education settings to help them become fully integrated into their school programs.
- Committee on Preschool Special Education Evaluations: We are approved to provide professional, multidisciplinary evaluations for children age 3 to 5 who are referred through the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE).
- Buddies Group: The Bank Street Buddies Group is a social skills group for children ages 3 to 5 who need support in the development of social, speech, language, and play skills. By providing children with the safety of a small, familiar group setting and the support of caring educators, children learn to create trusting relationships with their peers so they can generalize their new learned abilities in other contexts, such as school settings or daily life experiences.
