Where Families Find Support & Solutions

The School Solution: Commitment To Success With Educational Consulting

The New Year is a great time to commit to a successful education for your child and when it comes to finding the right choice for children with specialized needs, help is closer than you think.

The winter months are a busy time of year for educational consultants as parents are looking into boarding schools and therapeutic schools for distracted teens, students with special needs and children who may be faltering in their current school system.

As a parent you are faced with hundreds of therapists, programs, support groups, special schools, even wilderness programs, so designing the right plan for your family can feel like a daunting and overwhelming task. That’s where the educational consultants at The School Solution come in: we can help you design the best path for your family’s success.

For many years The School Solution has been a nationally recognized leader and pioneer in helping families find solutions for students with everything from emotional problems, drug and alcohol issues, to complex learning challenges.

Every child deserves to have an opportunity to do the best that they can. With the right tools, appropriate environment, and meaningful support you can help set them up for success.

Family’s Facing Challenges: Educational Consultants Can Help

Right after the Holidays and winter school break seems to be a time when families are faced with more challenges, and issues to address. These issues can be varied and numerous. Whether your child is in crisis or you just sense that something isn’t quite right, you know it’s time to take action.

Schools all over the world are adapting to help better prepare students to engage in the dynamics of the 21st century. Many of these schools, families, and educational organizations rely on the expertise of an educational consultant to influence a positive educational change and improve student achievement.

Educational consultants offer diverse skill sets that allow them to work with teachers, administrators, and parents at all education levels. We offer solutions and connect with students, teachers, and schools to increase chances for every student’s success.

Educational consultants can offer placement services in special-needs private schools, guide families through the details of the admissions process, and save them significant time in researching schools, even increasing the likelihood of a successful private school search.

If you have noticed your child has been struggling in school, it is time to explore your options for a better successful schooling situation. Every child needs a supportive environment to grow and develop. Sometimes traditional public schools just can’t provide the right fit for your child based on their current aspirations, progress, intellectual capabilities, or due to substance abuse issues. In these instances, boarding schools can be the better choice for a healthier, happier, and more successful life for your child. As a boarding school certified consultant, Karen Mabie will go through a series of interview steps in order to find a quality placement for your child

Fulfilling your child’s potential can seem like a very long journey when they have difficulties. It can be confusing and overwhelming. The School Solution can help orchestrate the perfect harmony between your doctors, specialists, therapists and all schools involved. We are your partner throughout the whole journey, and act as the one constant in getting your child the services they need.

If you told me on 70 days ago , when my son was transported to wilderness that I would feel so positive just 70 days later….I would have laughed.
