As you may have found, the web offers
a huge amount of information regarding choices for your loved one. No matter what you have heard about any particular programs, very child has different
needs. This is not only a way to help your loved one, but it is also
an investment of money, time, emotions, and hope. As Educational
Consultants, it is our job to know which programs are appropriate for
the client's needs. In addition to working with clients, more than half of our time is dedicated to traveling and
inspecting programs throughout the country. Our inspections are cross
compared with a national network of professional colleagues. We share
and compare research on which programs are the best matches for
particular types of clients.

Much of the list and more will eventually come out. Then, we will compare that information with the schools and programs which we have spent time inspecting and evaluating. Finally, program selections are made.
