Program Visioning & Implementation

With precision, we work with you to envision and begin the implementation of a comprehensive special education program.

We work with you to:

  • Attain for your leadership team an appreciation for learning differences and the importance of inclusivity
  • Understand – and provide to your leadership team– actionable knowledge of the federal Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) law and how it can be fully leveraged, alongside other resources, to fund and provide special education services
  • Envision and foster among your leadership team buy-in for the implementation of a comprehensive special education program

A veritable dark age within the history of American special education were the many decades before America’s bicentennial. Change began in the mid-1970s when – on a scale that had theretofore been unrealized – minds, hearts, and laws began to change. Consequently, students with learning differences fare much better today than did their distant and not-so-distant forebears.

Though the “dark age” of special education is past, the current age is not devoid of educational impediments which continue to confront and confound students (and also their families) with learning differences. Minds, hearts, and laws still need changing; the light of inclusivity can bring about this change.

Federal title programs and IDEA may partially or fully fund for your teachers this SPED program visioning & implementation. With unlocking this funding, we can help you!
