What is Early Childhood Special Education  (ECSE)?

Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) provides special education services for children with disabilities aged three through five. These students may have any disability recognized under IDEA-B in Texas including non-categorical early childhood. Developmental delay is not a recognized disability for children over age three in Texas. A student over age three with a developmental delay is subject to the two hours of instruction per day rule for membership.
