Multnomah Early Childhood Program (MECP)


Multnomah Early Childhood Program (MECP), under the David Douglas School District, provides early intervention and early childhood special education services to children birth to age five in Multnomah County.

MECP serves families in all eight school districts in Multnomah County (Centennial, Corbett, David Douglas, Gresham-Barlow, Parkrose, Portland Public Schools, Reynolds, and Riverdale).
Services are individually designed to address the special needs of the young child with developmental delays or disabilities.

All services are free of charge to eligible children.



The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) will soon be asking families living in Multnomah County with children receiving special education services to respond to the Family Involvement Survey. If you receive a survey, please take a few minutes to complete and
return it in the self-addressed, stamped envelope or complete the online version by going to the stated web address. You are an important member of our team. Your participation in this survey will help us plan improvements in our special education system.
