"BIS has been the most responsive and helpful team I have encountered. As a result of their help in the IEP process, my grandson has been able to obtain an IEP which has greatly helped him improve and excel in several areas in school. Our Pediatric Case Manager has been the shining light of hope and strength throughout this process, helping us navigate smoothly through what would otherwise be a stormy bureaucracy of red tape. What a gift! I am most thankful." - Grandfather of Client
