What is the Preschool Special Needs Program?
The Preschool Special Needs Program is a federally mandated amendment to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which mandates a range of educational opportunities for preschool students with disabilities aged 3-5.
Who is eligible?
Any child ages three through five (preschool age) who is experiencing significant difficulties or delays in cognitive, communication, motor, social or adaptive development may be referred for services.  
What is my first step?
Please go the Board of Education located at 25 Brooklyn Avenue, Forsyth, GA and enroll your child in Monroe County Schools.  After you have successfully enrolled your child, please contact Amber Ridley to schedule a meeting and start the process at amber.ridely@mcschools.org
