How We Began
We started our work in Special Education in 1999 after we won a grant from the
U.S. Department of Education. They asked us to apply the experience we gained in
automating private industry and government to fix the transition process, making
it more efficient. We achieved our goal!
Our research showed that despite all the good intentions, the transition process
itself is broken. Parents, students, and educators are not getting the results
they expect, and the costs are too high. Consider for example, that the overhead
cost of SE is 3 times that of Regular Education. Clearly, outcomes would be better
if the money were spent on the children, not on the system. The U.S. Education
Department agreed with our conclusions of the inadequecy of the transition
Our initial installations show that we can take 25% of the cost out of
administration. The challenge we now have is not technology but getting the word
