ACES staff are well trained and prepared to address the unique educational needs of individual students within schools and districts regardless of the type and severity of need. Beginning with interviews and discussions with classroom staff, ACES will comprehensively assess the student’s needs, identify and communicate appropriate objectives, develop thorough plans for behavior change, train staff to implement the plans, and empirically assess intervention effectiveness. Plans typically involve the use of known evidence-based instructional strategies and other specialized educational programming. Their successful implementation routinely involves collaboration and input from other members of the student’s educational team and an emphasis on generalization to other settings, situations, and individuals.
