About Us

We Provide High-Quality Special Education Services

Optimal Care Services is a NYSED-approved SEIT service provider and CTLE sponsor. Our agency provides:

  • Special education itinerant services for children ages 2.9 to 5.9
  • Special education teacher support services (SETSS)
  • Pendency
  • Bilingual SEIT services
  • CTLE (Continuing Teacher and Leader Education)

Optimal Care Services has been operating in New York City's five boroughs since 2013, providing much needed education, training, and support to families and early childhood centers. As a result, our program has become very familiar with the challenges that schools and families are faced with in navigating the process of acquiring special education services for students who are in dire need of support. Our program has also been a provider of professional development to early childhood centers and universities.

Our team is comprised of multi-lingual former SEIT teachers, BCBAs (Board Certified Behavior Analysts), LCSWs (Licensed Clinical Social Workers), experienced SEIT program supervisors/directors, and SEIT agency administrators and personnel with decades of experience working with CPSE and CSE district administrators throughout the 5 boroughs, early childhood programs, low income families, and families with limited English proficiency.
