As a group of talented and dedicated individuals:

It is our mission at SD Associates to provide evidence-based and trauma-informed services that will enrich the lives of individuals with disabilities and their families. We believe that all people can learn regardless of their challenges. We teach pro-social skills that enable meaningful community integration and support effective lifelong learning.

At SD Associates, we support our mission through a commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity. We welcome the full range of differences in the human family in our service provision, in our hiring practices, in our collaboration with stakeholders, and in our interactions with the community at large. That welcome underscores our dedication to equity of opportunity to all across all of our endeavors. We believe the best outcomes occur when our support is person and family-centered. For more details on our commitment to diversity, including our commitment to support individuals with limited English proficiency (LEP),  go here.

We have been providing quality assessment, consultation, and training to schools, mental health agencies, individuals with disabilities, and their families since 1990. For the past 18 years, our support has expanded to include direct service to children, youths, and adults in school, home, and community settings. For many, we are able to provide “wrap-around” support that enables individuals to remain in their home communities with their families.

Our early intervention, clinic-based services based in northern Vermont are certified by the Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE).

Foundations, our special education school in Windsor, is approved by the VT Agency of Education.
