Providing children with the highest quality therapy services while simplifying management and containing costs.

School-Based Services – All Disciplines

DIC partners with public, private, and charter schools, early childhood programs, and non-profit organizations to provide high-quality therapy services, on location, to children with special needs.

  • Consultation
  • Observation
  • Occupational therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Speech and language therapy
  • Special education coordination and consultants
  • Social Workers
  • Psychologists
  • Mental Health Therapists
  • Evaluations

There is no minimum required number of hours to initiate a contract. If you need multiple services, we provide all of the above, under one contract, through our “Special Education Support Teams.” All assessment tools and therapy supplies are provided and the school will only be billed for time spent working with the child and, completed required reports – nothing more.

Every member of our team is highly trained, compliant, subject to the ethical and standard practice of their professional domain, and licensed by the State of Michigan. All necessary credentials, including Child Protective Services, fingerprinting, and background checks are completed prior to working.

Whether you need support for the entire year, an evaluation for one student, temporary staff leave coverage or any other combination of services, we will work our best to meet your needs and budget. Our school-based services provide children with the highest quality therapy services while simplifying management and containing costs.
