Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE)
Children ages 3 to 5 years old who are thought to have a disability or are receiving early intervention services (EI) are referred to the CPSE. The CPSE will facilitate, through county approved agencies, a comprehensive evaluation to determine if a disability exists. If a child is found to have a disability and meets eligibility requirements, the CPSE will develop an individual education program (IEP) of services to meet the needs of the child. The Committee functions under the Part 200 Regulations of the State of New York and Nassau County Department of Health regulations. For further information, please call CPSE office at Ext. 3236.
