Itinerant Services

Last Updated: 4/21/2022 6:41 PM

Itinerant services are any form of specially designed instruction provided by an early childhood intervention specialist or related service provider.  Itinerant services are provided in the home setting, service provider location or in a community-based preschool/childcare program.  

Itinerant services address the child’s developmental needs using specialized instruction.  The intervention specialist may design instructional materials, create interventions for home, school or community programs, collaborate with families and monitor the child’s progress toward targeted goals.

Who can receive itinerant services?

Itinerant services are part of the Stark County Educational Service Center's Early Childhood Department and are available for children ages 3-5 who are identified as having special needs.  For further information, contact the your district's Special Education Coordinator.

What should I do while the itinerant teacher is at my house?

Get involved!  The teacher visits your home to benefit both the parent and child.  As the parent, you are the one who really knows your child.  Feel free to ask questions.

Why does the itinerant teacher bring games to my house?

Preschool children learn best through play and hands-on activities.  While engaged in such activities, children are having fun and learning.
