These partner programs have shown exceptional commitment to providing quality services to children, teenagers, and families in the special needs community. These instructors have additional experience working with children and teenagers of different disabilities and are ready to accept multiple participants!

How it Works

Instructors for Special Needs has partnered with multiple programs throughout Boulder County to provide your child with a wide variety of extracurricular activities. The partner programs were chosen for their creative approach to teaching, their instructors, and their commitment to offering high quality classes. The instructors are enthusiastic about adapting their classes to fit the needs of every child and teenager. IFSN collaborates closely with the instructors of these programs throughout each session to ensure that your child is reaching his or her goals and developing skills at the appropriate rate.

What to Expect

After choosing a partner program and instructor, you will sign up your child for at least one session, which is eight weeks of classes with the recommended partner program. After you complete the initial assessment, you can sign up for classes by contacting the recommended partner program directly. Once your child has started classes, your child’s instructor will answer questions throughout the session about his or her progress and also provide you with details about the class structure, payments, and availability. IFSN will be in direct contact with the instructors throughout each session. At the end of the four weeks, the IFSN OT will assess your child’s progress with you and the instructor to adjust and modify goals, environment, class structure, or activity as needed. This flexibility ensures that the classes continually adapt to your child each session as his or her skills and confidence increase.
