The Cathedral Preschool believes in the importance and benefit of early intervention. While we do not provide speech therapy, occupational therapy or treatment for hearing or vision problems, teachers and administrators are able to conference with parents on an as needed basis and provide referrals to resources in the metro Atlanta area. The following special services are available at the preschool:
Each year students in the Pre-K and Kindergarten classes take part in vision screening by Prevent Blindness.
Occupational Therapy Screening
Students at the Pre-K and Kindergarten level, with parent permission, are screened for fine motor/gross motor/perceptual skills. Students at the three year old level are able to participate in screenings for an additional fee.
Speech and Hearing Screening
Students at the Pre-K and Kindergarten level, with parent permission, are screened for speech/language/hearing by Atlanta Therapy and Learning Center. Students at the three year old level are able to participate in screenings for an additional fee.
Social Skills Group
LET’S GET SOCIAL is a fun and engaging social skills group offering for Pre-k and Kindergarten aged children. Lessons are drawn from The Incredible Flexible You Social Thinking Curriculum, which is designed to help young children learn the tools they need to become flexible social thinkers. Examples of skills that will be introduce include listening and communication skills, self-regulation, perspective taking, recognizing and understanding emotions and thoughts, cooperation, problem solving and sharing. Registration for this program will take place online as part of the preschool’s PALS registration.
