Identifies behavior concerns that may interfere with learning progress.
K-Shield Behavior is a process for collecting information to help determine why undesirable behaviors occur and to serve as a basis for the development of a Behavior Intervention Plan of Action (BIPA).
Early intervention begins with a multidisciplinary team evaluation to identify a child’s needs. Research reveals that early intervention services can considerably lessen the effects of developmental delays.
This new developmental screening service is extremely easy to access and highly effective in capturing children’s strengths and weaknesses, identifying those who can benefit from more intensive assessments addressing potential developmental difficulties/delays.
Several studies have indicated that many young children with clinically significant developmental delays are not detected until the first few years of school. Consequently, critical early intervention opportunities for young children who are at-risk of developing problems may be delayed and or lost. This can lead to varying combinations of academic and/or social school related struggles.
The K-Shield School Readiness is a comprehensive online assessment service for screening preschool and kindergarten readiness in children ages 3 to 5 ½.
K-Shield Academics will give parent/caregivers specific, direct, and understandable information about their child while assessing gross motor, fine motor, communication, cognition/ thinking and reasoning, sensory, social emotional development, pre-literacy and reading skills.
K-Shield Academics will evaluate the child as a “whole”, which will contribute to meaningful curriculum planning and the design of developmentally appropriate educational intervention Plan of Action when deemed necessary.
In addition to difficulties and challenges at home, children’s behavior concerns such as uncontrolled tantrums, aggressive physical behavior, or repetitive emotional outbursts can significantly interfere with learning progress and academic success.
BIPA is the intervention plan developed after performing the K-Shield Behavior screening, when undesirable behaviors are detected in school and preschool-age children.
The Educator Intervention Screening is an expansion to the K-Shield Academics, targeting pre-literacy and literacy skills based on common core standards. Amee Cohen and Associates recognizes the importance of reading for students and just how this impacts all aspects of the students’ educational journey while empowering the parents.
This screening measure will look at the six areas of reading: Print Concept, Phonological/Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Reading Comprehension, Reading Vocabulary
The importance of reading for children cannot be underestimated. Reading benefits a child’s education, social and cognitive development, wellbeing, and their mental health. Learning to read in the first years of primary school is critical for your child’s memory and success in future grades. Literacy is the cornerstone of development.
Our ESE Specialists will assist parents/caregivers, students, and educators with proven evidence-based interventions. Utilizing progress monitoring through data collection our team will provide intensive reading interventions to strengthen areas that were identified as areas of concern through our very own screening measure.
Amee Cohen & Associates provides specialist advice to support learning progress – through online screening tools, video consultation with ESE specialists and pediatric therapists, customized educational programs, differentials instruction plans and, where appropriate, pediatric teletherapy and in-school therapy services (Florida)

Education starts at birth. Our assistance does too.
“Education starts at birth and never ends. If children’s developmental needs are met, they will be able to maximize their potentials, whatever they may be.”
Inspired by this Montessori premise, we offer complete online tools and solutions to assess, monitor and meet all of children’s development and learning needs.
We believe that Early Intervention, both therapeutically and academically, is a fundamental part of the Educational Journey and leads to success.
Monitoring a child’s learning progress begins at birth and is an ongoing process. With that in mind, we offer a comprehensive online developmental assessment service, which includes the screening of children birth to age 3, designed for collaboration, continuity and results.
