EDUCATOR, SCHOOL

COMPLETING EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

AC&A welcomes all school staff and administration to our team. We are pediatric therapy providers integrating our services with educational goals and curriculum; assisting the students in achieving their academic and therapeutic goals. We are prepared to assist the school staff and administration with their entire classroom, academic and therapeutic needs. We look forward to collaborating with your school and optimizing the performance of each special needs student.

 

For the past decade we have worked closely with Private and Public school ESE coordinators, school principals and directors, classroom teachers and therapeutic services of all disciplines. We have a thorough knowledge of the process needed to implement a comprehensive therapy program focused on Best Practice principles and outcomes.

 

Schools provide academic instruction, testing, and management of student curriculum. It has been our observation that the required coordination of therapeutic services, implementation of the student’s IEP goals/initial testing/coordination of meetings and provision of therapeutic services is often a separate job. One that requires a team of therapeutic professionals.

 

Providing therapeutic services to the student in need of intervention allows the school the ability to offer the student access to his or her potential. AC&A coordinates the process for implementing the services needed, working with educators and parents, and completing the educational opportunities for your school.
