We are a clinically driven educational consultant practice. We focus on helping families of special needs children, adolescents, young adults, and adults. A consultant will work with your child and family with a range of challenges. These include learning differences, autism, or behavior challenges, maturity, gender identification or dysphoria, substance abuse or experimenting, acting out behavior, or academic challenges. We work with great kids and those challenged in school who skip school or are honors students.


Our support is key to helping your child and your family. Many families simply don't know where to start, in finding the right school or program to match their children. We walk you through the entire process helping to identify those challenges and continue working with your child before and after the placement. Families, recently affected by the COVID-19 pandemic will find our consultants will be most helpful in finding the correct placement setting. The future of your child is most important to our helping your family.
