Pre-School Special Education
HAC’s special education programs are designed to make a positive difference in the lives of our children and their families. As with all children, children who have or are suspected of having a disability require carefully planned and implemented quality early childhood services. Early childhood experts agree that the earlier developmentally appropriate intervention begins, the better. They also agree children are entitled to a care and learning experience that is fashioned by excited, dedicated professionals who see the opportunities and challenges for bringing each child to his/her fullest potential.
We provide special education services to children between the ages of 3 to 5 years in licensed New York City Department of Health/ Division of Day Care facilities. Our caring and professional staff is comprised of individuals who are certified and/or licensed as required by New York State law, have clearance from the New York State Register of Child Abuse and Maltreatment and the New York City Department of Education.
