SPECIAL EDUCATION THROUGH ESSENTIAL EARLY EDUCATION (EEE) SERVICES
Early Childhood Special Education services are provided to preschool children with identified disabilities and significant developmental delays. A broad range of special education services, consultations, and supports are provided in a variety of settings:
- Classroom-based services
- Early Learning Partners (Burlington community based preschools and child-care centers)
- Clinic Services
Children are referred for Essential Early Education (EEE) services by parents, physicians, community early childhood programs, and community agencies when there is a concern or question about a child’s development. Referrals are assigned to a case manager who contacts the parent(s)/guardian(s) to discuss their interest in moving forward in the referral process. All of our services are voluntary and require approval from the parent(s)/guardian(s). The referral process may lead to a screening and/or evaluation. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s development please call our Early Ed office at 802-864-8463 and/or complete the EEE Referral Form. Once completed by the parent, teacher, doctor’s office, or agency, the form can be submitted to: Burlington Early Education Program – 150 Colchester Ave, Burlington, VT 05401 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
