Here's what we're all about

Horizon's Mission

Horizon specializes in tailored learning approaches for children and young adults with special educational needs. By using research based recommendations and realistic interventions, we help families uncover the path forward to improving the quality of education for those that need alternative learning methods.

Not only do we assist in uncovering the special educational needs of our clients, but we take it a step further by advocating for that special education at our client’s educational establishment. We are a powerful ally when seeking to secure an IEP (Individualized Education Program), and will assist where we can.
