Early Intervention (Ages 3-5)

  • The Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) offers a variety of learning experiences for preschool-aged children who require special education services. Children three to four (3 to 4) years old and not yet age-eligible to attend transitional kindergarten can receive instruction geared to their individual needs. Special day classes, small group instruction, specialized services for young children on the autism spectrum, programs that build mobility skills, and remedial speech and language instruction are among the many services available. Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) are developed for each student based on assessment by a team that includes the child’s parents or caregivers, a private school teacher if applicable, a representative from the child's school district of residence, and the MCOE teachers, specialists, and administrators.
