Early Childhood Special Education

Preschool Autism Class (PAC)

In Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), Preschool Autism Class (PAC) services are designed to address the specific needs of preschool-age children who have been identified as having Autism Spectrum Disorder or present characteristics on the autism spectrum, and who cannot benefit from the early childhood class-based program. 

Early Childhood Class-based Preschool

Early Childhood Class-based services provide instruction in a classroom setting and are located in a number of elementary schools within FCPS. The curriculum is language rich and emphasizes communication, early literacy, social development, and the development of other skills as designated in the student’s IEP.
