Dan & Nancy Mitchell Therapeutic Preschool
Therapeutic Preschool at the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center helps 3-to-5-year-olds with disabilities or delays achieve their greatest potential and get ready for school.
After placement by their school system, these children work on a variety of developmental skills. In partnership with each child's family, an individual education plan is developed to help each student reach goals in language, social interaction, academic learning, and physical skills.
Physical, occupational, and speech/language therapies are provided as part of the regular preschool day, most often in the natural environment of the classroom.
A number of preschoolers with typically-developing skills also attend Therapeutic Preschool. Including children without disabilities benefits all preschoolers at the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center.
Preschool classes have a maximum of 8 or 12 children, depending on the type of class. Each class is led by a teacher with an Indiana teacher's license and a minimum of a bachelor's degree in education (some also hold a master's degree), as well as an assistant teacher.
Early identification and treatment of disabilities and delays is crucial to help infants and children achieve their potential. At the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center, a variety of Early Intervention services build the foundation for a brighter future for youngsters identified with (or at risk for) disabilities.
