Ascend Rehab is a non-public agency (NPA) that provides Speech and Language Pathology Services for school based services that are identified on Individual Education Plans (IEP's). When the school district (MDUSD) is not able to fill all open positions with district employees, the use of contract agencies is necessary to ensure that we are in compliance with state and federal law that govern special education.
Ascend Rehab is a company that will be utilized to provide Speech Services to ensure that all of our needed Speech Services are covered for the 2018-2019 school year. MDUSD Human Resources Department and Special Education staff continue to recruit and hire district employees.
Special Education Department Program Code 1219 Speech / Audiology
The contracted amount between MDUSD and is Ascend Rehab for $350,000 and is already included in the approved budget for the 2018-2019 school year.
