A system of services
A child's educational support consists of many components beyond the traditional academic and family setting. A sophisticated network of professional services ranging from pediatric psychiatry to speech therapy exists to maximize student achievement and personal development. Dartmoor sees itself as part of a system of services available to families in the Puget Sound, and believes close collaboration with professionals is vital to student success.
At Dartmoor, collaboration with professionals takes the form of student as well as staff education.
With the family's permission, Dartmoor corresponds with involved professionals to create an effective personalized intervention for the student. The level of collaboration depends on the family's wishes and the student's needs, but can consist of shared documentation, meetings, emails, phone conferences, and progress and exit reports.
Dartmoor seeks professionals to provide monthly trainings throughout the year and is honored to have hosted a phenomenal group of individuals over the years. Dartmoor's trainings focus on skill development and cover issues as varied as ADHD, Asperger's, and Literacy. To inquire about offering a training at Dartmoor, please contact Phoebe Harding, Director of Community Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (425) 885-6402.
