New Hampshire has a long history of providing a free, appropriate public education to children with disabilities, ages 3-5. By federal and state law, local school districts must work with families and community partners to find, identify and serve children who are eligible for special education and related services so that services can begin by the child's third birthday. An Individualized Education Program is developed for each eligible child based on that child’s strengths and needs. Placements may include the child’s home, local private or public preschool/kindergartens, or Head Start programs. Sometimes, the placement is in a special education program or even in a separate approved special education program or residential facility.
