Parent Resources

Parent Resources

Parents often find themselves in need of support as they navigate possible services to help their child with their educational needs. The experienced EYC administrative team works with our parents to determine which programs may be most helpful. We can also, provide information regarding public school assessments, Individualized Educational Plans (IEP’s), 504 Plans, and more.

Advocacy Consulting Services

The educational system can be confusing to navigate, especially if you’ve identified a new educational concern or if you want to expand current services. With over 50 years of combined experience, the EYC Academy administrative faculty is offering consulting services to parents who are trying to determine the next best step for their student. We discuss topics such as:

  • What is an educational evaluation and does my student need one?
  • How do I request an evaluation or re-evaluation?
  • Should the evaluation be performed by the public school system or a private practitioner?
  • What is an “IEP” and 504 Plan and what are the steps in the process?
  • What are accommodations and modifications?
  • How do I access academic support if my child attends a private school?

All students are unique learners and our Advocacy Consulting Services can help identify the important variables in each specific situation. To learn more about how EYC can help, schedule a time for a consultation or call us directly.

Helpful information about paying for Private School Tuition and Therapy Services

We offer families many flexible options to pay for tuition including tuition loans and installment payment agreements. Parents can also pay tuition from a 529 Plan and in some situations from an HAS (Health Savings Account) with some companies. In some states, children in foster or adopted care can receive funding for educational and tutoring services.

Social Skills & Small Group Classes

In partnership with licensed professionals, EYC helps to design personalized programs for students who have difficulty with communication and social interactions. Research-based methods and small group settings help students learn to navigate the complex world of interpersonal interactions. Concerns that may be addressed include reading and transmitting non-verbal cues, emotional regulation, problem-solving, perspective- taking, and initiating and processing social interactions.
