Special Education Preschool

The Bethel School District offers a continuum of special education services for children ages 3 through 5 with various developmental disabilities.  These free services are based on specialists’ assessments and are determined by the individualized education program (IEP) team.

Special education services may include preschool, speech and language therapy, behavioral interventions, occupational therapy and physical therapy.

The special education staff includes teachers, instructional assistants, speech language pathologist, occupational therapists, education specialist, physical therapists, school psychologists and school nurse.

If your child is between the ages of 3 and 5 and you have concerns about his or her development, the Bethel School District offers monthly screenings
for preschool children to provide information to parents on school related development.

If you wish to schedule your child for a screening appointment please contact the
Child Find appointment line at (253) 683-6929.

The screenings are conducted at
