Early Childhood Special Education

EACH individual learns and grows in his or her own way. For example, some children begin walking or talking at an earlier or later age than other children. Sometimes this leaves parents with questions or concerns about how their child is developing.


When you have questions or concerns about your child's development, a good first step is to speak to your family physician. However, many people do not realize that they should also contact their school district. 

Millard Public Schools provides special education services to eligible children birth to 5 years old.

The Millard School District employs specialists in early childhood development. An evaluation of your child's skills may be recommended. The evaluation results will help to determine if there is a delay in your child's skills and whether early childhood special education may be appropriate.  There is no charge for the evaluation or for services provided.


An important feature of Early Childhood Special Education is collaboration with the family. If needed, an Individual Family Service Plan or Individual Education Program is developed with the family and the appropriate service providers.


Eligible children may receive special education services in their home, daycare, private preschool, or special education preschool classrooms located in five Millard elementary schools.


Special education service providers will work with you and your child and may include one or more of the following: Early Childhood Special Educator, Speech/Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, School Psychologist, Teacher of the Hearing Impaired, Vision Consultant, Augmentative Communication Specialist, and School Audiologist.

For further information about early childhood special education services and questions and concerns about your child's development, please call Jean Ubbelohde Ed. D., Early Childhood Coordinator, 402-715-8302.
