If a child cannot learn in the way we teach, we must teach in a way he can learn.
Our services are the resources that defy the odds. Our methodology defines the approach to pair individualized services with specialized techniques. Alternating proven methods with external expert consults, we’re able to change everything you know about your child’s potential.

SEIT [Special Education Itinerant Teacher]
At Yes I Can, our SEIT experts are special education professionals who provide one-on-one assistance to a student beyond the five year age bracket. They work with students who have either a learning disability, behavioral issue, or needs special education assistance. Our SEIT teachers are trained to provide different levels of support and development aid to students in the classroom and beyond. They discuss student progress with their teachers, meet with the students’ parents, and assess students in a classroom setting in order to develop strategies to help address the child’s education needs. SEIT teachers can also visit students’ homes when they are unable to attend a school or need additional support in the home environment.
A SEIT is a New York State certified special education teacher who comes to work with a preschool student with a disability on academic, emotional, and social skills.
These services help students with special needs fully take part in all school activities. Our paras work with the student to ensure that health and learning needs are being met at schools. Our health paras are trained to monitor the child and if necessary to administer needed medication. Alterably, we will help the school manage behavioral crisis situations with trained crisis paras to ensure the child’s success by watching out for potential conflicts and providing de-escalation strategies.
Paraprofessionals provide instructional, behavioral, and other support to students in and outside of the classroom. Paraprofessionals often work one-on-one with students who receive special education and related services or those who have a 504 plan.

Groups play a basic role in the development of social nature. In a social group, our highly trained facilitator teaches the students how to interact appropriately with others their age, improve conversational, conflict resolution, joint attention and friendship skills in a small setting. Additional skills such as active listening, empathy, and respect are taught, practiced, and reviewed in a safe setting before implementation in the real social world.
