Our Team

Our Collaborative Concept

col•lab o•ra tive adj.– accomplished through working with others for a common purpose or benefit; "a cooperative effort."



We believe this collaborative concept allows us to better serve our families.  As a team, we meet each week to discuss student profiles, talk about ongoing research in the field of learning differences and trade new information about changes at programs at colleges.  We travel over 30% of our time, visiting disability services offices, taking tours, eating at the cafeterias, talking to admissions – all in an effort to know the schools so well that we are able to give the best advice to our families.

We also have strong relationships with a wide array of respected professionals whom we can call to consult on various issues that our students may experience.   Sometimes this means finding the right coach for a student with ADHD.  Other times this means finding a psychologist who will work well with our student in psycho-educational testing.   And sometimes it means finding a good gap year solution for a student who needs an extra year to mature.  These relationships enhance our ability to help our students.  We never receive referral fees or other monetary advantage from these professionals.
