Early Intervention (EI) is a statewide system that provides coordinated early intervention services to parents of eligible children under the age of three with developmental delays or disabilities. EI is grounded in the philosophy that young children learn best from familiar people in familiar settings.

PRESCHOOL (ages 3 to 5)
Full day preschool is offered at the Harrison County Board of Developmental Disabilities for children ages three to five. Three preschool classrooms are limited in size to 16 students (eight children with delays/disabilities and eight children with typical development). Each day is designed to educate and engage children in a variety of ways with hands-on activities that expose and prepare children for the skills they will need for kindergarten and beyond.
There are requirements to receive supports from the Harrison County Board of DD. Those will be discussed with parents once a referral is made. Parents wishing to enroll their preschool child with a delay/disability in the preschool must first contact the school district in which the student lives to begin the process.
