    <align="justify">The Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) is committed to assisting youngsters who have suspected developmental delays. If your preschool child is not developing skills such as walking, talking or playing with other children, you may want to speak with your family doctor. The doctor may be able to assure you that all children develop at different rates and that your child is within the normal developmental scales. If, however, the doctor is concerned or you are still not comfortable with your child's progress, you may make a referral to the Committee on Preschool Special Education.
