In Ohio, preschool special education is for three- to five-year old children with disabilities.

The Office of Early Learning and School Readiness aims for families, preschool staff, and the community to work together to meet the needs of young children with disabilities. To meet individual children’s needs, districts offer a variety of preschool special education services. Children with disabilities may receive services in public schools, private preschools, or child care centers.

Each child with a disability has an Individualized Education Program, or IEP. Parents, teachers, therapists, and school administrators collaborate to write the IEP. The IEP lists the individual goals for the child and the services the child receives.
