Rowland Education Assessment Center at Hollingworth (REACH)


The Rowland Education Assessment Center @ Hollingworth (R.E.A.C.H) is dedicated to providing comprehensive evaluations for preschool children using current evidence-based practices. Children’s strengths and areas of need are measured through developmental assessment activities as well as standardized measures. Our goal is to determine eligibility for special education services by identifying a child’s unique educational needs. We are committed to working collaboratively with families to ensure children are prepared to reach their highest learning potential. 

If a preschool aged child is found eligible for special education services, the district provides special education programs for preschool children from age three to five years of age. The emphasis is on a language-based developmental model which emphasizes meeting the developmental needs of the child. The curriculum is designed to maximize the young child's social, cognitive, language, motor, and independent skills in order to be successful.
