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

We are proud to announce that we are approved by the New York State Education Department to offer required training in the NYS Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) for professionals applying for certificates or licensure, including, but not limited to classroom teachers and assistants, school counselors, school psychologists, school social workers, school administrators or supervisors, and superintendents of schools.  The DASA is NY legislation developed to afford all students in public schools an environment free from harassment, bullying and discrimination.  This training is designed to enhance understanding of diversity and multi-cultural environments and examine personal biases.
