About the Program

The Clinic is a biannual event offered in the fall and spring. The Clinic offers a transdisciplinary assessment providing strategies and recommendations to school districts, preschools, families and therapists who work with students of ANY disability. The Clinic offers: assessment, intervention, research-based best practices, strategies, and recommendations as well as medical information and interventions for the attending students. This information can be used to validate existing programming, determine new goals for the IEP/IFSP, offer recommendations on existing goals and assist districts with their three year evaluations.
