NUSD’s Early Intervention Program provides special education services for identified students between the ages of three and five years when assessment results show that mild, non-intensive or moderate services are the most appropriate and least restrictive environment to meet their needs.
Early Intervention Services
The continuum of service options includes: speech therapy, occupational therapy, language lab, specialized academic instruction (2.5 hours per day from two up to four days weekly), or a combination of services. Occupational therapy motor group is provided in each specialized academic classroom weekly to facilitate the development of fine and gross motor skills prior to students’ enrollment in kindergarten.
