Students may be diagnosed with a varied of conditions including autism, Down syndrome and developmental delays.  Pre-K special education is fast-paced.  Teachers are responsible for adapting curriculum and collaborating with center teachers to meet a variety of emotional, behavioral, physical and cognitive disabilities.  Teaching life skills and social skills are also important. Early Childhood Special Education teachers promote parental involvement in the ECSE program and services as well as participate in community discussions regarding school-based services for young children.  All the ECSE teachers at NAESC hold an Arkansas Department of Education Educator’s license and many belong to professional organizations.
