  • Observe children in current school programs,
  • Visit and evaluate alternative or proposed educational placements, and
  • Interpret assessments as needed.

Develop Individual Education Plans (IEPs)

  • Synthesize developmental history, interpret previous and current evaluations, review school history and evaluate information necessary to formulate educational recommendations,
  • Prepare original draft IEPs for parents and educators,
  • Critique and provide input into existing IEPs,
  • Develop 504 plans, and
  • Recommend educational programs and appropriate teaching techniques to best meet a child’s needs.

Case Management

  • Provide parents with a single point of contact to facilitate inquiries and timely responses from multiple individuals involved in a child’s case,
  • Negotiate the complex special education maze, and
  • Refer family to appropriate professionals for additional services.
