Specialized Therapy Services Schools is San Diego's all inclusive special education resource.


Specialized Therapy Services, STS has provided Special Education Coordination and Services to Barona Indian Charter School for 9 years! The team of therapists and teachers, who have worked with us over the years, are knowledgeable, professional and truly have been an asset to the children and staff.  Our children love and respect them and it’s obvious that it is mutual.    Under the coordination of STS, Barona has continued to maintain compliance with state and federal guidelines and consistently stays within our budget for Special Education Services.

It is my pleasure to recommend the services that Specialized Therapy Services has provided our school for the
past 10 years!  STS has provided Speech, Nursing, and PT services to our organization and we have had nothing
but the most professional therapists work with our students!  They have met the unique needs of our students
and in doing so they have become a part of our Friendship School family! My admiration and respect for the providers make it quite easy to recommend STS to any special education program that is considering
their services.
