About our Special Education Programs:
The Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD) is deigned for students ages three and four. These classes are designed to provide instruction for students with delays in cognition, communication, psychomotor, self-care, and social-emotional areas. To qualify for PPCD1,2, or3, a student must exhibit a severe delay in one or more areas, or a moderate delay in two or more areas.
The Teaching Articulation and Language to Kids (TALK) program provides walk-in speech therapy for eligible students, ages 3 and 4 with severe articulation, phonological, and language disorders. Students enrolled in TALK will attend the ELC South campus, typically for 2-4 hours a week depending on what the ARD committee decides is most appropriate for the child.
If you suspect that your child may have a disability, you can schedule an appointment through Child Find by calling 817-744-6900. The KISD Special Education Department will schedule a time for you to bring in your child for an evaluation.
