Educational Consultation

Our educational consultation team can help you determine the best school placement for your child. We start with a thorough review of records — such as prior neuropsychological testing, ERB results, SAT results — and a meeting with you alone or with you and your child’s current school team. We assess whether your child is getting services that meet her needs, or if a different kind of school would be more appropriate, from specialized school environments that provide more support inside the school to highly specialized environments such as therapeutic boarding schools. Likewise, we can help determine when children are ready to move to a learning environment that is less-restrictive. We can also recommend activities for gifted children, and whether or not a student would benefit from a gap year between high school and college.

Navigating what differentiates schools and programs can be confusing for families, but our learning specialists have extensive experience helping parents form a plan for finding the learning environment that will work best for their child.
