Pike County Early Childhood School Programs
The Pike County Board of DD, Early Childhood and Family Center strives to provide
a caring, supportive, and student-centered program. Our small class size allows teachers
the opportunity to individualize instruction and make each student a priority. Intervention
Specialists provide specially designed instruction to meet the needs of every student
according to their Individual Education Plan (IEP). The current Curriculum implemented
at the Center is the Unique Learning System (ULS) which is aligned with the Ohio
Extended Content Standards. It is an on-line, interactive curriculum designed for students
with special needs. Differentiation is achieved through leveled lessons to meet each student's current instructional level. Each classroom is equipped with Epson Projectors, IPADS, PC's
and laptops. Teachers and staff participate in ongoing professional development to support continued overall improvements in our program.
Enrollment Process: The Early Childhood and Family Center school program serves students living in Pike County through referrals from the local school districts. To be eligible for school-age students should have multiple areas of disability and be determined appropriate by the IEP team. Anyone interested in enrollment, please contact our Director of Student Programs, Sarah Roberts at 740-289-1681
