Raising a child with special needs often requires parenting skills that feel foreign and non-intuitive. Professionals live and breathe these skills because they've practiced, refined, and taught them throughout their schooling and teaching experiences. Teachers often feel like they have a wealth of research-based strategies for these students, but their hands are tied because of the lack of resources available in schools. From the professional standpoint, we know that the only people that can really affect change in the schools are well-informed parents. Teachers are in difficult situations where they often want to speak honestly to parents about what each child needs, but they need to be cautious as they also speak for their school district and the budget. These sticky circumstances create an ever-widening wedge in home-school relationships, cause families to go years without family support and intervention, and leave children with special needs farther and farther behind their peers. All of this results in more costly interventions later for both the schools and the families. We can help you navigate this complicated system all while providing comprehensive educational services for your child.
Family-Focused Support & Intervention Services LLC does not provide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, but as special education teachers, we have experience with a wide array of disabilities and behaviors and can provide evidence-based support as they apply to educational circumstances. We have all received training on Applied Behavior Analysis therapies and incorporate their strategies into our interventions. We also incorporate other research-based strategies and choose the methods that work best for each individual family. Please note that this service is an educational resource support. Any advice given is not legal or medical advice. Any support given is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disability or disease. Resources are available for parents interested in those services.
