Integration Station (IS) has several pre-kindergarten special education programs that serve Arlington Public School (APS) students ages 2-5 who have disabilities. IS is co-located with The Children’s School (TCS) on site and provides an integrated educational program for 3 and 4 year old pre-kindergarteners with disabilities. The collaboration between APS/IS and TCS has provided students with disabilities opportunities to integrate with students without disabilities for over 15 years.
In addition, a special education program for toddlers and a pre-kindergarten multi-intervention program for students with autism (MIPA) are a part of the IS program. Students in the toddler and MIPA programs experience a range of integrated opportunities based on their needs. IS also includes our Community-Based Preschool Support Program serving students with disabilities in community-based settings like private pre-kindergartens, Head Start and child care centers across the county.
Together TCS and IS serve approximately 155 children consisting of infants, toddlers and pre-kindergarteners.
