Learn about our program

Mission

The mission of the Educational Achievement Partnership Program (formerly known as the School Intervention Program) is to advance long-term educational achievement in children with chronic illness through collaboration, knowledge, advocacy, and commitment.

Vision

To continually evolve the gold standard of pediatric follow-up care in order to allow every child the opportunity to reach their optimal potential.

About the Educational Achievement Partnership Program

We are led by experienced educators with special training in the neurodevelopmental impacts of chronic illnesses. We establish collaborative partnerships with families, schools, medical teams, and community care providers to interpret how a child’s health affects the brain and body and facilitate communication around the overall needs of the child. We build a comprehensive account of each child’s medical, educational, and social-emotional needs and advocate for those needs with the parent and school. With enduring support, we adapt our services to encourage continued achievement as a child’s health and education needs change throughout his or her educational career. This service is offered to heart families completely free of charge as a standard of care.
