Preschool-Aged Peer Models Needed
We will be having our annual screenings of peer models for the 2017-2018 school year on Wednesday, February 1st and 8th at 2:00 PM at Eanes Elementary.
The Eanes Independent School District Special Education Program is looking for typically-developing children who are ages 3-1/2 to 4 (between 9/1/17 and 5/31/18) to serve as Peer Models in our Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD) for the 2017 - 2018 school year. The PPCD classes provide early intervention services for children with disabilities through language-based child-centered activities.
All students are taught pre-school curriculum by certified special education teachers in the areas of literacy, numeracy, language, socialization, and independence skills through thematic units.
The Peer Models must have age appropriate verbal, behavioral, social, and self-help skills (including being toilet-trained) and will be selected based on their interactions with staff and other children.
The school day hours are Monday through Friday 7:45 - 1:45. The classes are held at Eanes Elementary, and parents will be required to provide transportation to and from school. The Peer Models Program follows the Eanes ISD school year calendar. There will be a fee of $500/semester for children who participate in this program.
If you are interested in having your child serve as a peer model, please contact Debra Bailey in the special education office to obtain an application.
