Autism Pre-School Programs

Preschool Neighborhood Peer Program

Our preschool classrooms for children with autism are "fully included" models which means typically developing children also participate in these classrooms. The District has been implementing this model for over 5 years with great success.

If you are interested or have questions about this program please contact Kristen Henry, Special Education Coordinator by email or at 949.515.6838 for more information.
