consultationoverview350x314 I offer consultation to families, schools, districts, teachers, and doctors. Sometimes, parents are interested in hiring me as a short-term consultant to review existing information and provide advice about additional assessment, advocacy, or trusted resources for services. Often there are opportunities to improve the quality of services currently offered by facilitating information exchange or offering a more comprehensive interpretation to providers. I am certified by the California Department of Education as a Nonpublic Agency (NPA 1A-34-043) to provide psychological services, behavioral consultation, and parent education services as part of an Individualized Education Plan.

Learning is a social process that occurs through interpersonal interaction within a cooperative context. Individuals, working together, construct shared understandings and knowledge.” ~David Johnson, Roger Johnson and Karl Smith, 1991.
