The goal of the WDMESC Early Childhood Special Education Program is to locate, identify, and evaluate three, four, and five-year-old children with developmental delays and to provide special education services until they transition to kindergarten. These services are provided free to the parent/guardian in the four-county area of White, Woodruff, Lonoke and Prairie Counties. The Early Childhood Staff works closely with school districts, head start programs, day care facilities, and parents in these counties in order to meet the goal of the program

Referrals can be made anytime by calling the Early Childhood Special Education office. Once a child is referred to the program, that child is screened in the areas of vision, hearing, developmental skills, and communication. If the screening process identifies a delay, a referral for further evaluation may be made. When the evaluation process is completed and it is determined that the child qualifies, a plan is developed to address the deficit area(s). A review of the child's progress, educational placement, and plan is done annually.
