(top)

Can you help my son’s/daughter’s teachers?

Yes, we provide our services with the student’s current educational setting so that we can support all team members in using technology in the most effective and efficient manor.

(top)

Can I (the parent or home care provider) come to the sessions/training?

Different teams of people have different relationships and different base levels of knowledge. Sometimes it works very well for everyone to be trained together, other times we provided separate trainings. This allows us to set the pace for learning in an environment that is comfortable for everyone.

What do I need to do to get you into my child’s school, the meeting is in 10 minutes?

We would be happy to provide you with a brochure (print or electronic) to share information about our services with your team. Please ask your team chair to contact us so that we can share information about our services directly with the district.

Do you write session notes each visit/quarterly progress reports, etc.?

We work to keep the lines of communication open between the consulting therapist, school team and family. Our experience is that the best method for that is email to regular team members. The frequency of communication varies team to team. We work with the school staff to create IEPs that can be reported on by team members who see students using the skills throughout the school week rather than just isolated consultation sessions.

How often to you provide services?

Service frequency is a team decision; there is not one right answer. We might provide an hour or two a week or an hour or two a year depending on the needs of the student and team.

I’m in New Hampshire/Vermont/New York/London (yep it happened) and willing to pay travel fees/expenses, will you come?
