When You Need Them,
Where You Need Them
We want to be part of your team!
While you're doing the big-picture stuff, let us tackle the processes, planning and people finding for your special education needs.
Our co-founders got their start in as special education professionals who realized a growing need for something more than the standard staffing service could supply. They formed their own company that combined assessments, consultations, and recruiting for full-time and part-time needs for therapists and counselors. Soon their services were being used by public, private, and charter schools offering staffing solutions with a focus on quality services.
While continuing to expand its reach nationwide, Specialized has maintained its small business core values, keeping schools in compliance while supplying them with talented professionals who are committed to improving the lives of students, parents, and communities. With more than 50 years of combined experience in education management, special education services, and staffing excellence, our expertise and commitment are our biggest strengths.
Powering our operation is our proprietary Online System that can be accessed from single-classroom charter schools to the largest school districts in the country. This allows your staff to manage your cases in the most efficient, secure way possible.
Our online system is a secure and sophisticated link between our providers, your schools, and our staff that delivers instant communication at the click of your mouse or the swipe of your finger 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The system allows access to account managers, our providers, and our clients.
Performance & Standards
Therapy comes in the form of smiles, high-fives, and fist bumps, but also in hard data and results. At Specialized, we partner with you to solve your most complex workforce issues. We treat every student and every school as individuals and never try to apply a one-size-fits-all solution to your needs.
We firmly believe in open dialogue to understand what your school requires and how we can build a custom staffing solution to turn staffing shortages into areas of strength.

Healthcare to School Transition Support
There are lots of brilliant therapists out there who have never worked in a school environment but are more than capable of doing amazing things for your students. We provide transition training for these talented healthcare-savvy professionals as they move to the education environment. We provide them with 1-on-1 mentors from their own special service field to oversee their work, guide them, and help them transform into valuable additions to your campus.

WHY CHOOSE SPECIALIZED?
My school has been using this company for two years now. Each assessment is professionally done and completed within timelines. The contacts (administrative team) are very knowledgeable and thorough with each assignment that we have requested. I have come to rely on the recommendations that have helped the students to be successful academically and behaviorally in the classroom. I highly recommend the services that are offered through Specialized Assessment & Consulting.
