Having a child with disabilities can feel overwhelming at times. While the IEP (Individualized Education Plan) process may not always be comfortable, it can help you and your child get valuable resources to help them succeed in and out of school. An IEP helps children with disabilities receive personalized and specific assistance.

You don’t have to wait until your child starts school to ask about learning differences or developmental delays. Even infants and toddlers can get help through early intervention. It’s never too early to get help for a child with developmental delays or learning differences.

Florentinum Preschool EYFS (The early years foundation stage) is unique in that families have the choice to begin receiving preschool special education services provided through an IEP at age three or until the beginning of the school year following their child’s 4th birthday. This extended IFSP (Individualized Family Service Plan) option is only available if the child and family have received early intervention services and the child is found eligible for preschool special education and related services. Child must be at least 3 years old to qualify for an IEP. At any point after a child turns three, the family may decide to receive services through an IEP.
