All things are possible when you believe they CAN and WILL learn - all it takes is someone to believe in them! At Believe I Can Academy, we believe #anythingispossible!
Consulting and advocacy embraces your child and their unique needs. To ensure BICA can identify and specialize your child's needs, we offer a free consultation. During the consultation, we will discuss various services which may include: research, IEP, MET, data review, FBA, BIP review, etc. We may request photocopies, mileage, consultations with additional professionals as needed and observation in the educational setting.
BICA creates educational enrichment specifically designed with specialized instruction for each individual with unique needs. We utilize private tutors accessed through the Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) program from the Arizona Department of Education. This gives eligible parents public funding to pursue flexible options for customizing their children's education. Funding is calculated on an independent basis dependent on each student's needs.
BICA offers customized training and consulting from a Master of Arts (Education) professional with over 20 years of experience building programs for individuals with special needs. We have vast experience with individuals who have chronic debilitating conditions, communication disorders, intellectual disabilities, autism, etc. We act as a consultant to help prepare a school, program, or faculty/staff to accommodate diverse needs. Fees may be billed hourly or by program as arranged.
We go beyond the walls of learning to teach and make lifelong friendships! We build meaningful relationships to be engaged members of our community.
Before and After School Support is an extension of the academic, social-emotional, job readiness, activities of daily living and interpersonal relationship building surrounding the IEP and student's specific needs. Support is provided by special education teachers, job/behavior coaches and various staff.
We offer various activities to cultivate skills, independence and support.
