Our mission through early intervention is to provide individualized services to
enable young children under the age of three who experience developmental
delays to progress toward their fullest potential. The services of the infant
toddler program are provided by qualified personnel at
no expense to families.
The Early Education Center (EEC) is 1 of 37 tiny-K networks
(tiny Kansans) serving special needs children from birth to 3
across the state.
The overall goal of early education is to help the child overcome,
or diminish, the delay to allow for an easier transition into
future required services.
Our programs are individualized. Once a child is screened and
evaluated, we work with the parents to develop the IFSP
(Individual Family Service Plan).
These plans are designed to target the strengths and needs of
the family working with their child.
Our services focus on speech and language, fine and gross motor,
cognitive, self-help, and social emotional skills, effective parenting
skills, as well as assisting with family needs.
The family's choice along with the child's individual needs help
determine the selection of services.
& Families Served:
The Early Education
Center (EEC) is designed to meet the needs of any family with a child
under the age of three who is developmentally delayed, has an
established risk for delay, or qualifies based on clinical
judgment of the team after evaluation.
Our tiny-K services are available to children in Barton, Pawnee, Rice,
Rush and Stafford counties.
The professional team that provides the services includes: Early
Childhood Special Education teachers, Early Interventionists,

environment, which includes their homes,
setting or preschool, such as Incredible Years Preschool.
All EEC Programs place major emphasis on providing
parents the opportunity to become the major participant of their
child's total developmental program. We try to learn "at
the feet" of the parent(s) who are the experts on their child.
All of the Early Interventionists and Preschool Teachers are
well-trained in the latest Evidence-Based Practices in early
