Despite demand, speech-intervention preschool loses district funding

A private Arizona preschool that specializes in children with speech and language problems is winning parents' praise but will no longer be supported by public funds after district budget cuts. "I think a lot of people are just not aware of how significant early intervention can be," said Sandy Iskandar, who says her son Nathan quickly quadrupled his vocabulary while at the school. "A lot of people just wait until they're in the school system, and they get referred by their primary teachers, but getting help early just sets a totally different tone for the rest of their lives. It's just one less obstacle for them to overcome." Arizona Daily Star (Tucson)
