What would you like to know?
WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE?
What makes us unique is the experience and background in both speech language pathology and educational consulting. We have the skill set to not only help find the right school for the student, but to also setting them up for success, by offering coaching to strengthen social skills, executive function coaching, and self advocacy skills. This will build the foundation for both academic and social success in college and beyond.
WHAT IS AN IEC AND HOW CAN YOU HELP?
An Independent Educational Consultant, aka (IEC), provides students and families with a broad range of resources for the college planning process. An IEC is not tied to any specific High School or College and has first-hand knowledge of higher educational opportunities. An IEC has the time, availability and expertise to provide individualized services tailored to the needs of each student and family. An IEC can take some of the anxiety surrounding college application off the parents' shoulders. We work closely with parents and the student to guide you though the process. We do the heavy lifting, by researching the right schools, managing deadlines, and presenting you with information and options.
DO YOU ONLY WORK WITH STUDENTS WITH LEARNING DIFFERENCES?
Yes, we deliberately work only with students with learning differences, and primarily with neurodivergent students, who may be autistic, have ADHD, or other related disability. Many of our students struggle with social communication and/or executive functioning. With a speech language pathologist training, we have an understanding of the special challenges that effect learning and for how this impacts the choice of school, what accommodations may be needed, and for how to work with the student's strengths.
WHAT AREAS DO YOU SERVE?
We are located in Westchester, NY. We offer college consulting and coaching to clients in NY state, as well as out-of-state, while speech therapy currently can only be provided to NYS residents due to licensing regulations.
DO YOU OFFER IN-PERSON OR VIRTUAL SESSIONS?
Currently, we offer primarily virtual sessions. However, clients within travel distance of Westchester, NY, are welcome to come in-person on an agreed upon basis.
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
Speech and articulation therapy, may be covered by some insurance plans. We do not bill insurance directly, but can provide a monthly out-of-network insurance paperwork (i.e., Superbill) on request. We advise that you check with your insurance company to determine whether you are eligible for reimbursement. Please note that insurance plans typically require full evaluations for services to be covered. College consulting and coaching is not a service covered by insurance.
