In Spectrum Services sibling groups, the siblings of the special needs children get to talk about how their lives have been affected by the autism disorder. They can express their frustrations and concerns with other children that are going through it at the same time… The children in these groups also get to know what it is like to have autism.Ellen

Referrals

We welcome questions about our program from concerned parents, physicians or other professionals. When appropriate, we share information on procedures and regulations governing Early Intervention, preschool or school age special education services in
New York State.

Referrals for school age children are accepted from the child's home school district Committee of Special Education.

Referrals for preschool age children (ages 3-5)  are accepted from the child's home school district Committee on Preschool Special Education.

Referrals for Early Intervention children (age 2-3) are accepted from the Early Intervention Official in the child's county of residence. Decisions about a child's suitability for admission into our center-based programs are made by the Spectrum admissions team after receipt of educational and medical records, the review of current evaluative information, interviews with families, and observations of the child in school or home settings.
