Our Services


School and Program Placement

Our focus in school and therapeutic placement matches a student with the right school(s) based on understanding each child’s unique strengths and weaknesses with the schools teaching styles, specialized learning support, class sizes and integrated therapeutic components. 

Having over 20 years' experience “on-the-ground” at schools and programs and  having spent the last 30 years touring hundreds of facilities, our expertise includes long-term relationships with key personnel to assist in managing the transition. We also offer detailed advice on touring and the application process. We open doors...


Crisis Intervention Management

During a crisis, our focus is to quickly stabilize the situation. 

Intervention-assessment programs are typically 30-90 days and provide parents with a thorough understanding of the underlying reasons for behavior and recommendations for next steps. 

This approach allows parents to make thoughtful, researched decisions before moving forward. A trap many parents fall into is admitting a child directly into long-term care, placing their child into a higher level of care than is clinically warranted. 


Parent Support that works for you

We offer solutions for families that fit your timeline and budget. Our clients have unlimited access to their service provider. Many times, our clients just want to talk. In a crisis, sometimes they want to connect daily. It shouldn’t cost extra to connect. Our approach ensures that you have access when you want it.
