Partnership for Education

Partnership for Education


Partnership for Education provides therapeutic services to children with disabilities and/or developmental delays and their families.

We operate on the belief that providers of services should work in partnership with the family and caregivers of the child, and in partnership with other professionals the child encounters to ensure the best services.

We believe that services should encompass the newest research on brain development and its direct implications for how children with disabilities learn to help mitigate a child’s disabilities and/or developmental delays.

Our services include physical therapy, occupational therapy,  speech/language therapy, social work, psychological counseling, and special educational instruction. Some services are available in Spanish.
