About A.C.T.S. - Agencies for Children's Therapy Services
Formed in 2002, Professional Agencies
for Children's Therapy Services (ACTS) is an association of 33 agencies providing Early Intervention, Pre-K, Special Education,
and School Age Special Education service. These collective agencies are located on Long Island and in New York City.
We serve over 25,000 infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in all five boroughs of New York City, as well as Nassau, Suffolk,
Westchester, Rockland, the Mid-Hudson Region, the Capital District, and the North Country.
The agencies of ACTS
predominantly provide service in home and community settings, through sub-contracts with independent therapists, though we
also provide facility-based individual/collateral, parent-child group, group developmental intervention, and family/caregiver
support group services. The clinical focus includes the full spectrum of services, including evaluations, therapy, and
is the first and most active organization that solely represents the views of Early Intervention Providers who predominantly
serve children and families in their home and community settings.
Representatives of ACTS are actively involved in many professional organizations, including:
Best Practices Committees
NYSEIP Operational Issues Work Group
Quality Assurance Committees
Needy Family Fund
World Wide Orphans Foundation
