Massachusetts EI services
Wed, 11-09-2005 - 7:30pm
Hi - I am new here. Ds was just diagnosed w/ PDD-NOS a few weeks ago. He also has a speech delay and sensory integration issues. We love the ST and OT who come through EI . We are thinking of moving to MA from NY, but a major factor in our decision is the quality of the EI services we can get there. Does anyone have any experience w/ EI in the Boston area? TIA!

I used to work EI in Massachusetts but that was 6 years ago. Then you went through the local EI coordinator and they usually contracted out to private service providers for ABA at home. I worked for one of the private service providers called BEACON. They were really good then. There is also MAY center, and a few others in the area but I did like BEACONS philosophy then but remember this was 6 years ago.

I did work with alot of the EI's in that area of Massachusetts and I did like most of them and most of the service coordinators.
