What is the CPSE?
CPSE stands for the Committee on Preschool Special Education. CPSE serves children with disabilities from the ages 3 through 5. CPSE does not necessarily mean that a child will be attending a preschool program. It indicates that the child is of preschool age (3-5). The NY State Education Department (SED) oversees the program statewide. School districts, counties, and approved providers work under the New York State guidelines and regulations. Evaluations and services or programs are provided to eligible children who have a disability that affects their learning. Funding for these special education programs and services are provided by the counties and state.
