1:1 IEP Aides

TheraCare provides special education services to the student of Baltimore City Public Schools. Our 1:1 IEP Therapeutic and Non-therapeutic Aides are assigned to various citywide programs, special education classrooms and general education classrooms as a part of the student’s IEP services to help them remain in their Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). The Non-Therapeutic aide helps students to stay focused on academic tasks as well as transitioning, toileting and changing when appropriate. The Therapeutic aide helps students to maintain adequate behavior by assisting with the implementation of the Functional Behavioral Assessment/Behavior Intervention Plan. Aides also help students meet the academic goals on their IEP. Our Special Education long-term certified substitutes help Baltimore City public schools ensure that sufficient instructional services are provided to their students to remain in compliance with students’ IEP services.

The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program funded by New York State and county governments for children under the age of three who are either suspected of having or at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. Potentially eligible children must be referred to the county program to receive EIP services: New York City - 311 Westchester County - 914-813-5094 All EIP services are provided at no cost to parents. Health Insurance may be used for approved services. A child’s eligibility for the program can be determined only by state-approved evaluators under contract and all services must be authorized by the county. If a child is found eligible for the EIP, all needed early intervention services are identified in collaboration with the parent and must be authorized by the municipality. The municipality will arrange for service providers, considering the individual needs of the child and family, to deliver services authorized by the municipality. When early intervention services are delivered in child care settings or community locations that require a fee, the parent is responsible for paying any associated costs with such access to child care or community locations. TheraCare is approved by New York State and has a contract with New York City, Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk Counties to provide early intervention services.
