Early Childhood Special Education Services

The Educational Services Early Childhood consultants and the Early Childhood Special Education consultants work collaboratively to provide support to all early childhood centers and programs, both public and private, in Northwest Area Education Agency. We provide on-going professional development to all preschool providers. Training opportunities include Quality Preschool Program Standards (QPPS), Every Child Reads (ECR), Positive Behavior Support (PBS), Iowa Early Learning Standards (ELS), and curriculum specific to early childhood.

In addition, Early Childhood Special Education Consultants help families and children in their natural environment, including homes.
