After your child or student has been granted SETSS services, The CSE (Committee on Special Education) in your district will give you a P-4 form, which is an authorization to have SETSS. You have found the best agency to help you with this process.
After the P-4 form has been signed by the parent, we will match the best highly qualified, certified provider with your child/student. Then submit the P-4 Form, so the services can start as soon as possible.
We advocate for the child/student and parents. We work hand in hand with you, so that our students goals are being met.
Services our agency has rendered for our families and schools:
1) During the pandemic, all our students (who didn't have laptops) were given laptops from our company, so they could continue learning at home
We have done so much more!!! Email or give us a call today.
School administrators and parents, please fill out a contact form to have a highly qualified provider work with your student(s) or child(ren), today.
“Back in 2017 When I decided that I’m going to home school my daughter , I was confused and worried that the decision I took is right or wrong. We faced so many teachers and their ability to handle with the special needs kids. Then we met Mrs. Cornish with her unique ability to Interact with the kids. We are totally surprised to see our daughter progress and her interest for learning has improved. My daughter likes Mrs. Cornish from the very 1st day! Mrs. Cornish making sure my daughter gets more than she would get in school. Thank you Mrs. Cornish for your support, motivation and teaching me as a parent of a child with autism. We are truly blessed to have you in our lives. Thank you so so much!” - W and L. H (in Astoria, Queens)
"In order to grow both emotionally and cognitively our child required more than usual caring and attention. We realized the limitations faced by a teacher with 25 other children to provide this on a daily basis. Thank God for Ms Cornish who I knew and worked with when she taught Kindergarten in the South Bronx. She has accomplished what many thought was not possible. Our child though caring and an understanding of her approach to learning has improved in both performance and receptivity . Thank you Ms. Cornish for all you do for children." - M. W. (Bronx)
