As the goal of special needs services is that of least Restrictive Environment (LRE), HTA recognizes that many special needs student are attending typical preschools. This means that private preschools created for their local communities, with/without certified teachers, need to be able to integrate the special needs students with their typical peers.
Known for our commitment to quality, HTA recruits and places trained practitioners in community, and educational settings. We are dedicated to matching the right provider(s) with those needing our services and pride ourselves on our responsiveness to families/schools as well as to our therapists and special educators.
A child at your site may been approved for special education services through his/her Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) at their local school district. If HTA of NY has been contracted to provide some of these services, you will receive contact numbers should you have any specific questions or concerns regarding the instruction provided by our teachers/therapists.
Aside from New York State certification and/or licensure, all of our providers meet clearance through the New York State-wide Central Register of Child Abuse and Maltreatment.
We have created a variety of lunchtime workshops for the benefit of staff in typical preschool settings whose student are receiving services through HTA. Named 'lunchtime workshops' because we aim to provide each one in 45-60 minutes, fitting in between morning/afternoon sessions. These sessions can also be provided at the end of your school day . Certificates of attendance are provided to all participants. We would love the opportunity to present these to your staff.
