Our feature this month is “Where the Wild Things are” from Springfield R-12 Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) program.

The Springfield R-12 Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) program serves 430 children in the Springfield area.  Over 70 integrated peers receive a pre-school education while serving as models for language, social skills, and behavior.  The program offers a comprehensive range of programs provided by highly qualified teachers including: specialized instruction in the classroom, speech therapy, language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, intenerate services, parent collaboration and behavioral consultation.

The mission of Early Childhood Special Education is to effectively meet the individual needs of young children with disabilities by:

« Collaborating through community partnerships

« Providing quality services

« Incorporating developmentally appropriate activities into instruction

« Using research-supported practices

« Recognizing cultural diversity

« Being family-focused

“Where the Wild Things are” opens on May 7 (during the First Friday Art Walk) and will continue for the rest of the month.  We’re still putting the final touches to the display, and will post images soon. We’ll also add details about the hands-on session planned for Center City Saturday on May 15th – so check back soon!
