Where Families Find Support & Solutions



The Introduction

We will need a full academic, treatment and family history of your child. You will need to complete our intake form and include school and/or independent evaluations. After the intake is completed, we will schedule an introductory meeting or phone call. During our introductory meeting, we work with families to define and focus our search. We discuss your child’s physical, social and academic development. You and, if appropriate, your child will share your educational, social and emotional goals and expectations for the future. Finally, we outline an appropriate timeline for the placement process to suit your individual needs.

Let’s start the process together!



The Review

We perform a thorough review of all records, including interviewing teachers, therapists or other professionals who can assist us in understanding your child’s unique strengths and weaknesses. We then screen, identify and contact the schools and programs we feel will address your specific requirements.



The Result

Many families report tremendous relief once their child is in an environment with the appropriate structure and support.
Most importantly, parents describe a joy in watching their child begin to experience success. Eventually, everyone, including the student, is able to make plans for a healthy and productive future.

Review our Options and see if The School Solution is the right fit for you and your family.
