Conjunto PreK Therapeutic Preschool is one major element of the agency’s integrative early intervention strategy and is the only therapeutic preschool in northern New Mexico. This innovative preschool model equally blends students that are 3 and 4 years old; one third have developmental disabilities or delays; one third have emotional special needs; and one third are considered as developing normally. The program promotes self-esteem, cooperative behaviors, and the constructive expression of feelings, as well as developmental growth in language, cognition, motor, and self-help skills.
In FY 16/17:
- 88 children where provided with the opportunity to experience close and stable relationships with adults who show empathy and understanding.
- 214 siblings or other family members received support to help them better understand how to address the emotional and developmental needs of their children.
