For any child, few choices will have as great an impact as their choice of school.
With all the information available, the search can be overwhelming to a student and their family. They may find themselves at a loss to properly evaluate their options and to make appropriate decisions. At times, a comprehensive battery of testing could also be useful.

That’s where an Educational Consultant can play a vital role. An Educational Consultant is a skilled professional who provides private support to help the student and their family select the best match to meet their needs. Educational consultants visit many kinds of schools and provide unbiased advice and individual attention to each family, based on their professional judgment about the student’s specific needs and abilities.
