By its very mission, ACES is charged with “providing collaborative, customized, cost effective solutions to meet identified needs of our educational community” and this mandate is the center stone of ACES Behavior Services. Since its inception in 1988, the department has successfully developed more than a dozen specialized programs at ACES and has creatively collaborated with numerous schools and districts to meet the unique challenges students. As this work continues, and as more districts proceed with their own creative endeavors, ACES is refining its capacity to provide schools and districts with comprehensive, objective feedback and helpful, specific programmatic recommendations.
