The Early Childhood Disabilities program of the Olathe Public Schools incorporates typically developing children into the program. These students are referred to as “Peers”.
Definition of a “peer” for the ECD program includes children that do not have, or are not suspected of having a disability. Eligibility to be considered, or to maintain status as a peer in this program requires meeting this definition.
The Olathe Public Schools believes it is important to provide preschoolers with special needs, (Speech/Language delays, behavior concerns, fine and gross motor delays, hearing impairments, genetic disorders, etc.) the opportunity to learn with peers who are typically developing.
The application process for the 2018 -2019 school year begins on January 9, 2018. Children must be three or four on or before August 31st in order to participate in the upcoming school year. Children must speak and understand English and also be toilet trained.
Benefits your child can receive by being a peer participant:
- More positive/accepting attitudes about people with disabilities
- More social skills
- Equal, if not greater, developmental progress
- Access to a highly qualified teacher
- Good student to teacher ratio
