ACCEPT is a regional non-profit educational organization that promotes excellence and innovation in educational practice for school districts and students in the MetroWest Boston region.
Since 1974 ACCEPT has served students, families, educators, and school districts with programs and services supporting unique learners. There is nothing more gratifying than seeing students and their families setting goals, overcoming challenges, and celebrating successes – both large and small.
We work with parents and districts to design individualized, evidence-based programs for each student addressing academics, behavioral and therapeutic needs, life skills, and specialized services based on the IEP. The goal is to build strengths and self-confidence, and to maximize potential for students in elementary, middle, and high school grades. Our Extended School Year programs are designed to prevent substantial regression of skills and provide a bridge between academic years.
Transition programs for students aged 18-22 at ACCEPT ready students for employment, college, high school or special diploma, independent living or adult services.
Our programs are fueled by measures and ongoing assessment protocols to initially design each students’ individual program, routinely monitor progress and adjust students’ programs so that they reach their full potential.
ACCEPT believes that what matters most in student achievement is excellent teaching and learning. Professional development offerings are designed to meet the instructional, management, and leadership challenges that educators face on a daily basis. Open to member and non-member school districts.
As an extension of the district we have intimate knowledge of their challenges and readily customize services to meet the specific need.
Our demonstrated ability to respond to the evolving environment and regulatory changes are true differentiators of ACCEPT services.
Our services include: consultation & evaluation, transportation, medicaid reimbursement, and home-based.
