“Being awarded primary vendor contracts speaks to our past performance and reputation as a quality provider. Being part of Liberty POST and Liberty Resources put us in a strong position to advance from a tertiary vendor to a primary vendor,” says Shirael Pollack, Director of Watch Me Grow.
Liberty POST is approved by the New York State Education Department and the New York State Department of Health to provide professional services to children ages birth to 5 years old for evaluations, special education, speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, social work, service coordination, and audiology. Liberty POST clinicians possess significant experience and expertise in providing ongoing therapy services and evaluations, in group and individual settings in the clinic, homes, daycares, and preschools. They work in a collaborative model to provide services to children with developmental delays, behavioral challenges, and a wide variety of diagnoses – among them: Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, medical conditions, prematurity, and apraxia.
Liberty POST therapists will be working in preschools, public schools, charter schools, and homes in the Manhattan neighborhoods of the Lower East Side, Chelsea, Midtown East, Clinton, Yorkville as well as the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Morningside, Brooklyn Heights, Fort Greene, Bedford-Stuyvesant, and Greenpoint.
