The early intervention team consists of an early childhood special educator and a reading specialist. They are on-site in the preschools at each of our partner schools for approximately one to two days each weekly. They work in consultation with classroom teachers providing support for classroom management, instruction and early literacy. They also work with small groups of selected students to improve social skills, phonological awareness and beginning reading. The early intervention team works closely with the preschool team to identify students at-risk and will assist in the development of an intervention plan that may necessitate formal testing and result in more intensive student support in the Learning Center.
