This is a time of change. The systems in place that deliver services, education and support to individuals with disabilities are complex and difficult for families to navigate without a guide. And in this time of change, it’s even more difficult. It’s challenging to keep up with changing regulations; even people who work in the system don’t always have the most up-to-date information.

If you would like Outside The Box Associates to provide a presentation to your group, please call or email us at least 3 weeks prior to the desired date.  We have many years experience–both of personal and professional– with the preschool, K-12 and adult systems that provide services to individuals with disabilties.  Some of the topics we are fluent in are:

  • System Redesign (OPWDD)–Self Direction, Direct Support Professionals, Budget Authority and The Olmsted Act–What You Need To Know
  • Transition (from high school to work or post secondary school)
  • Office of People with Developmental Disabilities Front Door
  • the IDEA (Individual With Disabilities Education Act)
  • The Americans with Disabilties Act (ADA)
  • Parent’s and students’ Rights Under the IDEA (your right to a Free Appropriate Education in NY State)
  • Discipline and the IDEA: The Intersection of Behavior and Disability: FBAs and Behavior Intervention Plans

We will work with you to customize our presentation according to your needs.
