Assessment and Intervention Center

The SEEM Assessment and Intervention Center (SAIC), serves as SEEM’s Extended Evaluation and Interim Alternative Educational Setting (IAES). Located at 260 Fordham Road, Wilmington,  the SAIC site provides a highly structured therapeutic milieu setting for students in grades K-12.  Students are enrolled for up to 8 weeks/40 days. While enrolled, students participate in a variety of targeted assessments unique to their presenting needs.  Assessments include initial evaluations for special education, psycho-educational evaluation, school neuropsychological assessments, and risk assessments.    The Assessment Center team evaluates psychological, social-emotional, behavioral, and academic functioning to determine special education placement needs and the services required for effective remediation, linking assessment to intervention.
