Services for Preschoolers

Services for Preschoolers

The Rocklin Unified School District (RUSD) offers a continuum of special education services to preschool-aged children with communication and/or developmental delays.  These programs are located at Cobblestone, Parker Whitney and Rock Creek Elementary Schools:

  • SDC Class – Structured Teaching Program
  • SDC Class – Non-categorical
  • SDC Integrated Preschool
  • DIS Preschool Intervention Program (PIP)
  • DIS Speech Services
Professionals work in coordination to provide an appropriate program for the child and family.  In addition to parent/guardians, the team includes a teacher, instructional assistants, and may involve a school nurse, school psychologist, speech/language pathologist, occupational therapist, program specialist, and other support staff.  The team assists in assessing students and coordinating services provided by other agencies or programs within the community. The team collaborates with the family in developing a curriculum to implement the goals of the Individualized Education Plan (IEP). 
We encourage opportunities for active family involvement in our programs.  Teachers provide materials, hand-outs, and suggestions in an effort to promote carry-over and mastery of skills beyond the scope of the classroom.  It is our desire to involve the family as a partner in all aspects of the child’s program; referral process; assessment; developing the IEP; class participation, and transition to other programs.
