Our staff believes Children with special needs are children first and that their job is to learn through play. At BEEM we recognize that children learn in different ways and that they learn best in their natural environments through everyday routines and experiences.
Children Birth-3 Years Old:

Children 3-5: Pre-K Readiness Intervention
If your child needs continued support after turning age 3, this is an intervention service designed to encompass 5 learning domains (whole motor, cognitive, behavioral, social-emotional and self-help). These are areas that Pre-K classrooms focus on and through this intervention it is our agencies goal to help parents and children who may need extra assistance prepare for their child’s kindergarten year. This service begins with a free observation session and discussion with family of the needs they and their child may have; as well as developmental survey performed with the child to assess the child’s strengths and weakness based on criteria addressing developmental milestones. This survey will be used to determine areas of development that need to be addressed. Our staff will discuss with families the results and if services need to be considered. The family and our staff will meet again to develop a plan of action for the family and child. Our staff will provide services for families on an adjustable fee rate.
