Family Services

SpEACS uses a multi-faceted approach to ensure that your child receives the best educational programs and services available:

Needs Assessment

  • Meet with the family to determine:
  • Concerns of the family;
  • Discuss pertinent developmental history and it’s relation to educational needs of the student;
  • Review previous and current IEP’s necessary to make educational recommendations;
  • Develop an Individuals’ Action Plan (IAP)

Individuals’ Action Plan

  • The IAP may include but is not limited to:
  • Observation of your child in the present educational setting;
  • Visitation and assessment of a proposed alternative educational placement setting;
  • Provide input into the development of the IEP, Section 504 Plans;
  • Assist in the negotiation of services, programs and related needs;
  • Make recommendations for classroom/testing accommodations and modifications;

Case Management

  • May serve as your case manager ensuring that your child receives services as directed by the documents and that there is an ongoing communication between the family, school personnel and other outside professional staff. This may include:
  • Progress monitoring;
  • Parent/Teacher “Interim” meetings;
  • End-of-Year IEP and “Section” 504 meetings.
