Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD)
8 students : 1 teacher
3, 4, 5 year olds
A general education classroom including typical children and those who may have delays or disabilities. A language-rich environment for those with delayed speech, for example. Not all children with a disability receive support in the classroom, as it depends on the child’s needs. And individualized education plan (IEP) is created outlining specific services.
Early intervention is key. AISD will evaluate any child who is believed to be delayed or who may have special needs to determine qualification for PPCD. Click here for information.
When a child is significantly behind in a subject, he or she is pulled out of the classroom for additional work with a specialist.
If speech affects academic performance, or has a language disability, a student will receive services.
22 students: 1 teacher
Social Communication Resources and Services. A program primarily for children with Autism that employees a curriculum to teach social skills. One example is “Lunch Bunch” where small groups meet in a classroom for lunch to work on social skills in a less overwhelming or overstimulating environment. Students in SCORES are in a general education classroom and may or may not receive services in the classroom, and may be pulled out for additional work. An individualized education plan (IEP) is created for each student outlining these services.
Program offered to students who don't qualify for special education, i.e., dyslexia, ADHD, and more.
SBS Social Behavioral Skills

Welcome back! Transitions can be a challenge and bring about some big emotions for many of us. I hope that going from summer into fall has been a fairly smooth one for all of you and your kiddos. And if this is your first year at Baldwin or you're just coming upon this site, I'm so glad you're here.
Mrs. Murray and I are eager to host 3-4 CPAP gatherings touching on ways to help your child thrive, as well as ways to support yourselves and your families as parents and guardians of a student receiving special education services. We will get that information to you soon. In the meantime, the incredible Family and School Support Team FASST hosts numerous events and get-togethers that you may find of interest. See the flyer below. Looking forward to seeing you at one of our functions soon, and feel free to reach out anytime! You can contact me through this website.
