Note: Much of the history of the Richmond Public Schools was recorded in the context of a segregated society, and the reader should readily discern between pre- and post-desegregation observations. The terms "black," "colored," "Negro," and "white" in this booklet should not be considered offensive as they have been used according to the custom of the particular period. Since 1962, the division has omitted such racial designations from its reports and publications.
Preschool Development Center
2124 North 29th Street
This early intervention program began in 1975, as the result off a General Assembly mandate requiring an educational program for all handicapped children, ages 2-21. It is housed at the Fairfield Day Care Center in facilities rented from the Friends Association for Children.
The Preschool Developmental Center provides early identification of handicapping conditions in order that students may then receive the necessary medical and educational assistance.
