Special Education Itinerant Teacher (SEIT)

A child speaks and we listen. - Sonia Holmes, Former VCLC School Principal

Special Education Itinerant Teacher (SEIT) services provide help to children from a special education teacher in a natural setting, such as a nursery school, summer camp or the child's home. Serving children and families, who reside in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, and New York City.

SEIT services are provided by a certified special education teacher who:
  • Implements the child's Individualized Education Program (IEP)
  • Collaborates with nursery school directors and teachers to meet the child's needs
  • Coordinates the child's educational goals with other providers and therapists
  • Participates in Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) meetings
  • Provides opportunities for parents to partner in their child's education
Children ages 3-5 years, who are classified by their school district's CPSE (Committee on Pre-school Special Education), are assigned SEIT services.

Children with:
  • Speech/language delays
  • Behavior difficulties
  • Short attention span
  • Impulsivity
