Choosing the right preschool for your child can be a daunting task, especially when your child has a developmental difference. You might be wondering if a therapeutic preschool is the best fit for your child. But what is a therapeutic preschool? What does it provide that another preschool doesn't? What should you look for in a therapeutic preschool to know that it is right for your family?
In this session you will learn what makes a preschool therapeutic, how traditional therapy is integrated in the preschool environment, the benefits of a therapeutic preschool experience and what questions to ask to make sure you find the best fit for your family.
You will walk away from this discussion understanding:
1. How therapeutic preschools differ from non-therapeutic preschools
2. How parents can evaluate and compare therapeutic preschools
3. What to look for when touring a therapeutic preschool
4. What to expect when transitioning to traditional schools after preschool
