Shared Responsibility Program

This program is the best of both worlds and combines some teacher-directed courses with some parent directed courses. The school shares the responsibility for administering the educational program with the parent(s). 

This program is highly customizable and a program plan is best created in collaboration with the school. Reimbursement eligibility depends on the percentage of the program each provider is responsible for.
