Independent educational consultants are professionals who assist students and families with educational decision making. The advantages of a parent using an independent educational consultant are they:
1.) are on the side of the parent and the child.
2.) are skilled and experienced in matching a child’s needs with the strengths of schools and programs.
3.) have personally visited many of the schools.
4.) know the facts behind the brochures.
5.) are part of a nation-wide network they can tap into.
6.) can save parents money by helping them avoid common “mistakes.”
7.) are often parents themselves, so they have “been there.”
