- The New York State Education Department (SED), Office of Special Education oversees a statewide preschool special education program with school districts, municipalities, approved providers and parents. Evaluations and specially planned individual or group instructional services or programs are provided to eligible children who have a disability that affects their learning.
- If your child is currently receiving early intervention services, they will need to be referred to the Committee on Preschool Special Education prior to their 3rd birthday if you and their therapists continue to have concerns regarding development. You or your service coordinator should contact the Buffalo CPSE office by phone @ 716-816-4745 or by email @ email@example.com to make the referral.
- If your preschool-age child (3-5 years old) did not receive early intervention services, but has some delays or lags in development such as difficulty in talking, moving around, thinking, or learning or is facing physical or behavioral challenges, you should make a referral to the Buffalo CPSE office. You can contact our office by phone @ 716-816-4745 or by email @ firstname.lastname@example.org to make the referral.
