Special Education

It is crucial that children get an appropriate education and support if they are to reach their potential. This is especially crucial for Special Needs children who require additional attention and support. These children must be treated with care and have an education which reflects their unique needs. Without a supportive educational environment, special needs children may not only fail to reach their potential – they may fail to develop essential life skills or even regress.

20 U.S.C § 1400(d)(1)(A) to ensure that all children with disabilities have available to them a free appropriate public education that emphasizes special education and related services designed to meeting their unique needs and prepare them for further education, employment and independent living.

ACFE works to get Special Needs children the programs, services and tools they need to reach their potential. Under the IDEA, all children with disabilities who are found eligible have the right to a free appropriate public education FAPE that emphasizes special education and meets their unique needs.

We helps make this possible by assisting you throughout the process. After your child is evaluated by the school district to determine whether they meet the eligiblity criteria set for by your state, we will review the records to assess your child’s strengths and weaknesses and identify your child’s needs. Next, we accompany you to Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and annual review meetings to ensure that appropriate goals are set, implemented and achieved.
