  • Systematic transition from Early Intervention Services 
  • Special Education Evaluations
  • Inclusionary and substantially separate programs for both preschool and kindergarten serving most student disabilities, serving three and four year old children, as well as five year old children where appropriate
  • Preparation and support with transitions to Dedham Elementary Schools
