Referrals for preschool age children (ages 3-5) must be made in writing to the Committee on Preschool Education (CPSE) in the school district where the child lives. The CPSE is part of the Committee on Special Education (CSE). The letter should be addressed to the CSE Chairperson. A list of CSE chairpersons and their contact information can be found here.
The referral should list the child’s name, date of birth and address, and should contain contact information for the child’s parents. It should also talk about any specific concerns you have about the child’s development.
