Ancillary Services

Traditional and charter schools are experiencing a shortage of ancillary (Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, Diagnosticians, Social Workers, Mental Health Services, Assessments) personnel.  Even if such therapists and services can be found, they are often very, very costly.  To help alleviate the shortage and provide a cost-effective solution, ACES recently  published a Request for Proposals (RFP) for Online  and in Person Ancillary Services.

ACES received and evaluated the proposals and awarded a contract that can be used by schools.  Since this contract has been publicly bid, they meet all of the requirements of the NM Procurement Code and at a lower cost for ACES members. The following companies have been awarded contracts. If you are interested in using their services please contact the company directly.


TalkPath Live is a web-based ancillary service provider offering the New Mexico Charter Schools Marketplace IEP-required therapy and interventions in the fields of speech-language, occupational, and physical therapy, counseling, social work services, dyslexia services, and early intervention. As a vendor for NMACES for five year, TalkPath Live teletherapy is convenient, secure, affordable, and effective—just as effective, in fact (and in some cases more so) than traditional in-person therapy. With TalkPath Live, highly trained and qualified therapists connect directly with students online—live, in real time, for one-on-one therapy sessions. Web-based tools and instructional strategies maximize screen time and fully engage today’s technology-oriented students. Lesson plans are customized, scheduling is flexible, and services are reimbursable via Medicaid in the School.

TPL currently has clinicians available for either immediate service or for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year!

These therapists are ready to meet your school’s needs, and they’re happy to serve as your primary provider or as a secondary source, for however many students and hours you need, with no minimum requirements. Best of all, TalkPath Live can reach any student anywhere at any time, expertly and compassionately treating the full array of communicative, cognitive, mobility, and developmental deficits, disorders, and disabilities.
