About Us

Our Vision

    As teachers, we understand that there are no one-size-fits-all-solutions to the challenges we face.  However, we believe that education needs innovation and easy to use tools that hold the capacity to transform our daily practices without draining our time.  Our goal at ADE is to make your life easier by helping you to save time as you work to design individualized Specially Designed Instruction for your students.  At the end of the day, we got into this field to increase children's academic achievement and improve their vocational skills.  Let's make this happen together.

Our Approach

We are driven by action and know that you are too.  As teachers, we tend to spend too much time focusing on consequences.  We believe that action is best spent on front-end solutions and guided by results.  ADE wants to give teachers, both general and special education, the tools they need to design a high-expectation individualized education for students with special needs that fits within their unique classroom.

Meet the Team

We want to partner with forward-thinking, action-driven individuals and schools who believe, like we do, in the unlimited capacity of all children.
