Early Childhood Education

The Early Childhood Special Education

The Early Childhood Special Education Program (ECSE) is a free and public service provided by the Hallsville School District and services children who are three-years to kindergarten age with educationally disabling conditions.

Children with disabling conditions are those who demonstrate significant delays in one or more of these areas:

  • Communication (Speech and Language)

  • Cognitive

  • Adaptive

  • Social/Emotional

  • Physical (Gross and Fine Motor)

The Early Childhood Special Education Program seeks to identify disabilities and delays as well as strengths for children.  To be eligible for the program, children must meet specific guidelines and criteria based on screening and evaluation procedures.  If the criteria is met, the staffing committee places the child into the program.

Students may also qualify for the program as at-risk. These students have to fall into the “at-risk range” during the screening process in order to be admitted into the program. This means they are in need of a program to provide early intervention to help them be successful when they enter kindergarten.

The services provided by the Hallsville Early Childhood Special Education Program include classroom teachers, a speech and language therapist, occupational and physical therapists, and teacher assistants.  Consultant services for hearing impaired and visually impaired students are also available.
