Preschool Aged Peer Models Needed for 2020-21 School Year

We will be having our annual screenings for peer models for the 2020-2021 school year at 2pm on either Wednesday, February 5th or Wednesday, February 12th at Eanes Elementary.

The Eanes Independent School District Special Education Department is looking for typically-developing children who are approximately 3 1/2 to 4 years old to serve as peer models in our Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) classes for the 2020-2021 school year. The ECSE classes provide early intervention services for children with disabilities through language-based child-centered activities.

All students are taught preschool curriculum by certified Special Education teachers in the areas of literacy, numeracy, language, socialization, and independence skills through thematic units.

The peer models should have age-appropriate verbal, behavioral, social, and self-help skills (including being toilet-trained) and will be selected based on their interactions with staff and other children.

The school day hours are Monday through Friday 7:45 AM – 1:45 PM. The classes are at Eanes Elementary, and parents will be required to provide transportation to and from school. The Peer Model Program follows the Eanes ISD school year calendar. There is a $500 fee/semester for children who participate in this program.

If you are interested in having your child serve as a peer model, please contact Debra Bailey in the special education office to obtain an application.

***The application window opens on 1/17/2020 and closes at 5PM on 1/31/2020. Applications received after the closing date will be added to a waiting list for consideration at a later date, if needed.
