For a number of reasons, some infants, toddlers and preschool-age children may need access to special education services before they enter kindergarten. They may have an identified disability or developmental delay, or they may be at risk for a developmental delay. Any aspect of a child’s physical, mental or emotional development that may interfere with his or her ability to benefit fully from regular education services can qualify a child for special education. Prevention and early intervention are key to helping children develop to their full potential.
The Special Parent Information Network (SPIN) is a parent to parent organization in Hawaii that provides information, support and referral to parents of children and young adults with disabilities and the professionals who serve them. Visit http://www.spinhawaii.org
