Philosophy of Transport

Philosophy of “Therapeutic Escorts” and Duty of Care are always our most important concern. The safety of the adolescent is the cornerstone on which West Shield builds its foundational approach in the transport and care of the student. Over 30 years ago our Founder Allen Cardoza created a systematic therapeutic approach is designed to:

  • Immediately lower anxiety within the student
  • Quickly build short term trust with the minor
  • Reduce the fear of the unknown of the adolescent by painting a positive picture of the new environment that they are transitioning into.

Mr. Cardoza has continued to infuse West Shield’s escort protocols with cutting edge 21st century evidence based treatment techniques and tactics that child psychologist and behavior therapist utilize in their practices.
