Integration Station (IS) has several pre-kindergarten special education programs that serve Arlington Public School (APS) students. IS is co-located with The Children’s School (TCS) in Ballston, and provides an integrated educational program for 2-5 year old children with disabilities. The collaboration between APS/IS and TCS has provided students with disabilities opportunities to integrate with students without disabilities for over 20 years. Integration Station offers a continuum of classrooms including a special education classroom for toddlers and a pre-kindergarten multi-intervention program for students with autism (MIPA) are a part of the IS program. Students in these classrooms experience a range of integrated opportunities based on their needs.
