What are Developmental/Special Education Services?
Developmental services focus on screening, evaluation and intervention services to address the functional developmental needs of a child with a developmental delay or disability. An emphasis is placed on a variety of developmental areas including, but not limited to, cognitive processes, communication, motor, behavior and social interaction
Achieve Beyond Pediatric Special Education Services
At Achieve Beyond our Special Educators evaluate each child’s global development in order to identify areas of developmental delay and then design, implement and modify therapeutic interventions for the child and the family to promote skill acquisition in a variety of areas including:
- Play, imitation, and problem-solving skills
- Interpersonal, social and communicative skills
- Emotional development
- Self-concept development
- Behavior / self-regulating skills
- Classroom readiness
- Adaptive development
Our educators work in collaboration with the family, service coordinators and other service providers. We also work with parents and caregivers via family training, education and support provided to assist the family of a child with a disability in understanding his or her functional developmental needs and to enhance his or her development.
