Our mission is to promote ongoing professional growth, increase awareness of local services in the Delaware Valley to students and encourage collaboration across disciplines in order to better meet the needs of schools and their students.

For Specialists

With almost 300 members in local schools and professional practices, SOS continues to be an important resource for those who work with students in the greater Philadelphia area. SOS provides formal and informal opportunities to network with other professionals, and to share information about the many things we do within and across specialties to make each student’s learning experience successful.

When faced with the challenge of identifying the needs of students (ages 6 to 21) with learning disabilities and ADHD, we tend to focus our energy on developing a thorough understanding of the disability itself, which we hope will lead to effective intervention. We know that there are multiple factors in the student’s world which might affect the ultimate outcome. However, it can be difficult, even overwhelming, to shift back and forth from the individual to the larger context.

In this workshop we will present a model that we trust will be a “user-friendly” tool to help maintain the important, broad, systemic view needed for effective intervention. We believe that this approach is crucial when trying to understand what the world is like through the eyes of our students and their families.

For Parents

While SOS stands for Specialists of Schools, it can also be a resource for parents concerned about their children’s education.  Our membership is multidisciplinary but is joined together by an emphasis on educational issues within specialties.
