Educational Consulting, School Placement, and Advocacy in California, Nationwide, and Abroad
How will an education consultant
Our staff offers educational planning for public and private placement,
at-risk students, advocacy for students with special
needs, advising for summer programs, boarding school selection, day school
options, relocation advising, assistance to student and parent for
college placement, and consultation for the selection of vocational
training, interim programs, and independent living opportunities.
For the at-risk population, our role is to gather as much relevant information as possible about a child and then plan for educational, therapeutic and, sometimes, behavioral interventions appropriate to the child's and family's needs, goals and desires. We travel constantly throughout the U.S. and, abroad, visiting and evaluating schools and programs. Our consultants keep current with program offerings, staff changes and population mix at hundreds of facilities. Bodin Associates routinely follow-up with our families and the children we have placed, to better understand elements such as communication, efficacy of treatment, emotional safety, etc.
What can we do within the public school special
We can serve as an advocate for you and your special needs student during
the IEP evaluation and planning process. We help identify and prioritize
your student's needs and explore options that best serve your student. We
can help improve the total learning situation for your child.
What alternatives can we offer to the public school
We can identify and facilitate enrollment for a student into an
appropriate independent day or boarding school or treatment center.
