Behavioral specialists work with families who need to find resources both locally and nationally. There are hundreds of therapeutic programs across the nation that specialize in different areas of focus. Educational Consultants visit and evaluate these programs in order to better align each child’s strengths and areas of need with appropriate program choices for the family.

According to NIH, in The Principles of Adolescent Substance Use Disorder Treatment: A Research-Based Guide, “Treatment should be addressing the special needs of persons wholly to boost personal and professional development instead of just focusing on their use of drugs.

The most successful treatment approach is including supporting adolescents’ larger needs in life, like those issued related to psychological, social, or medical, and also addressed should be issues related to education, housing,  transportation, or legal issues.

Not addressing such needs and issues simultaneously could have negative effects on the level of success when treating these adolescents. This is precisely what our behavioral science should address to have a positive influence on your child’s education and future.

Parent coaching

You should consider partnering with a family coach professional when:

  • you need support in determining how best to establish family harmony.
  • you feel stuck and need to have a partner to guide you through a crisis and help you, as a parent, reestablish needed control. ·
  • you are feeling like nothing you are doing is working and you are feeling like giving up.
  • you child goes to a residential and/or local program and you need to do “your work”.
  • your child is coming home from a residential program and the family needs to be prepared.

When a family has been spiraling in a series of constant crisis and things become unmanageable for them at home, it is often beneficial to enlist the assistance of a partner to assist in helping you (the parents) to regain your parental balance and regain the strength and focus that is needed to restructure and regain your family’s balance again.

A Parent Coach Professional assists parents by guiding them, in partnership, through the use of powerful questioning to once again find their strengths, establish positive boundaries and maintaining a healthy family environment.  This process empowers families to deal with future challenges more effectively as a unit and ultimately promotes a healthier, happier, and more successful family life.

Advocacy

Advocacy services are for parents who have learned that their child has a diagnosed learning difference or disability that is impacting their child’s ability to access their education. An advocacy specialist can help parents navigate the special education process by:

  • Supporting them in their understanding of the process
  • Offering strategies during the planning stages
  • Providing goal suggestions for the development of their child’s IEP (individual educational plan)
