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 35 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 service coordination.
ACTS 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.
