One of the reasons Kids In Harmony was created, was to be able to give families the best service possible and to be able to give clients the amount of time that is needed to make sure the service that is offered is extremely thorough, efficient, effective, and legally sound. The ultimate goal is to empower parents and to help them successfully navigate the public and private educational system. Kids In Harmony takes a solution-focused approach to support families and to minimize the amount of time and money they must spend on testing, services, and interventions. We want to ensure that if we make referrals and recommendations, they are the right ones for our families’ unique challenges. Kids In Harmony also works with school districts and charter schools in providing services through the Independent Educational Evaluation Process, which are free to the family. We are on several school district’s IEE list within the county of San Diego.
