We provide consulting covering many aspects of learning and learning difficulties. For example, parents may feel overwhelmed when dealing with complex school-related matters such as the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) process. We can help you sort out what’s most important for your student’s specific situation.
Navigating the IEP Process
Whether you’ve had a hard time figuring how to navigate the IEP process or your child has been determined ineligible and you don’t know what to do next, we can help clarify your options. We can answer questions, provide information, create a road map and offer guidance and reassurance along the way.
Differences Between an IEP and 504 Plan
If you are confused between an IEP and a 504 plan, we can help you understand the differences and the rules and regulations that govern each. Hopefully, we can also help you avoid spinning your wheels.
Developing an Educational Support Plan
If your child doesn’t need an IEP, but seems to be struggling in school, we can work with parents and teachers to develop a plan to support your child effectively in school and at home. A parent or teacher’s job can often be overwhelming, so in our role as case managers, we work with teachers and learning specialists to develop accommodations that can help your child improve academically. We can also help teachers realistically implement accommodations in a busy classroom.
We’ll monitor progress periodically, conduct assessment or make referrals as needed, and use the test results to highlight areas of strength and address areas of weakness in our interventions. We’ll listen carefully to you and your child and communicate on an ongoing basis with you as well as with teachers, administrators and other allied professionals on your child’s team. We’ll also be pro-active—and we hope you will, too—in initiating team meetings to discuss progress and adjust our course along the way.
