Achieve Beyond was founded by Dr Trudy Font Padron, PhD. Achieve Beyond is dedicated to provide quality English and Bilingual evaluations and therapeutic and education services to children ages 0 to 21 years old. We use a family-centered and multilingual approach to ensure parents that their child’s developmental needs are met in a nurturing and supportive environment.
Achieve Beyond understands the challenges of raising a child with development delays. It is particularly demanding for families that speak languages other than English. We provide a supportive environment for families from the initial evaluation process through the preschool and school age transitions.
We pride ourselves in our ability to provide bilingual therapeutic services in more than 45 languages. Achieve Beyond is committed to matching clinicians with the cultural and bilingual needs of each family. We are determined to help each child achieve his or her highest potential
Our premise is based on the concept of inclusion, the crux of which involves the provision of services in the child’s natural environment. The Achieve Beyond team works closely with parents and other adults who spend a significant amount of time with the child to capitalize on the child’s existing network of family and community support. This approach results in more meaningful and well-rounded intervention for young children.
We strive to acknowledge the family’s own perceptions of the child's strengths and weaknesses, encourage active participation of family members in evaluation and intervention and ggree on expectations and goals for the child .
Achieve Beyond provides educational and therapeutic services to children, students and families throughout the United States including California (CA), Illinois (IL) , Connecticut (CT), Virginia (VA), Oklahoma (OK) and New York (NY). We offer coordination in initial evaluations as well as follow-up sessions and try our best to provide services in the predominant language of the patients in both home and community settings.
Some of these services include pediatric Speech Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy Physical Therapy, Special Education, Autism Services and Counseling.
Achieve Beyond's team of highly qualified health care professionals include Speech Language Pathologists, Teachers of Speech & Hearing Handicapped,Special Educators, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Social Workers and more.These services are provided through state programs and certain branches like our Shorewood, Illinois branch offer private-pay insurance programs as well.
The most valuable tool for achieving our service vision is superior human resources. First, we exercise team process in all aspects of patient intervention and management. Second, we are committed to staff development through supervision and training opportunities.
Our staff is trained to offer culturally sensitive evaluations and services in numerous languages including: English, Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin,Hindi, Urdu, Russian, Polish, Creole, Korean, Arabic, Farsi, Tagalog, Greek, French, Hebrew and many others.
