AIM offers various services that benefit those of special populations. If you're a district employee, superintendent, counselor, or otherwise working in a school system and are in need of support, we've got it covered.

School Psychology

AIM was founded by school psychology professionals. We train school psychology graduate students. We teach school psychology courses at the university level. We live and breathe school psychology. While the traditional view of school psychological services is probable limited to testing and maybe counseling, we know that supporting schools requires much more than that.

Our school psychologists are trained to support schools in the areas of consultation, RtI, behavior, professional development, mentoring, supervision and ARD/MDT participation. Education is changing and so are the students that we are meeting. The shortage of mental health professionals, including school psychologists, has pushed us to expand our concept of the school psych beyond just one evaluator with one test kit working with just one kid.

How can we use our existing resources to care for a group of students who are growing in number and growing in complexity? AIM looks for ways to incorporate other trained professionals in our evaluations such as dyslexia specialists or diagnosticians. We spend considerable time gathering referral data so we can be as focused as possible when we evaluate. We incorporate technology in our testing methods, our writing, our quality assurance and our project management to maximize efficiency.

Models for AIM’s school psychology services might include everything from a 5-day a week, on-campus person to an evaluator who just visits when there are overflow cases to be done. Our staff is trained in special education software and familiar with medicaid billing processes. In addition to assessment, we are available for bilingual evaluations, IEEs, supervision of your own school psych employees or grad students, in-home training evaluations, FBAs, professional development, mentoring new staff or providing clinical oversight to veteran staff.

Whether you need to fill staff openings or just strengthen the team you already have, we’re available to customize options to fit your unique needs.

Behavior Services

RTI

In addition to academic needs, students may display behavioral needs. AIM helps guide schools in providing appropriate behavioral supports to address the identified needs. All students benefit from classroom-wide positive behavioral supports. AIM consults with campuses to review behavioral data, refine current behavioral supports, identify students who may require additional behavioral supports, and provide guidance in that support provision.

FBAs/BIPs

AIM provides comprehensive Functional Behavior Assessments (FBA) that focus on identifying the function or purpose behind a behavior, assesses a plan and interventions, and uses multiple sources of information to create a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP).

Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA)/Registered Behavior Technician (RBT)

AIM provides Board Certified Behavior Analyst and Registered Behavior Technicians who provide evidence-based practices in order to teach and implement positive behavioral strategies. BCBAs assist with designing and implementing programs and interventions, and also oversee programs and interventions implemented by RBTs


Dyslexia

Identifying dyslexia varies greatly from state to state. Some states don’t recognize dyslexia at all, some include dyslexia in their special education services, and some consider it to be a 504 disability. In Texas, dyslexia is considered a 504 disability and possibly a special education disability.

While Texas sorts out the confusion over the state of dyslexia, AIM is continuing to provide high quality evaluations that meet the state and federal guidelines, no matter where your child attends school. We have a team of experts at AIM with extensive experience in evaluating, treating, and providing consultation services for dyslexia. We include a comprehensive review of a student’s history, risk factors, and needs, in addition to an evaluation for characteristics of dyslexia and related disorders, such as dysgraphia.

In a school setting, we work with the guidelines determined by each district to evaluate students for dyslexia, to make recommendations for programming based on the options available in your district, and to explain the results of the testing to parents. We also provide comprehensive training to school staff who are struggling with their changing role in working with students with dyslexia. We understand the struggle, the frustration, and the ambiguity and we are here to help.

AIM provides high quality Independent Educational Evaluations (IEEs) in virtually all areas of evaluation. All of our evaluators have worked in the school setting and are very familiar with the requirements of a school-based evaluation, so you can be confident that you will receive a high-quality product that will be useful to an IEP team.


Sped 360

AIM provides related services to students in special education in order to ensure IEP goals are met.
