Private, Community-Based, Transition Specialist
Families with Special-Needs Individuals
As a trained special-education professional with over 25 years of experience, I act as consultant to and advocate for the families of special-needs individuals. I help to navigate the education system, transition programs, and the individual challenges of post-transition life.
Adult Special-Needs Students Ages 18-22
For adult special-needs students currently enrolled in transition programs, I consult with families to develop transition priorities and help perfect their individual education program. I also provide one-on-one private tutoring and exercises to help accelerate and focus the transition process.
Post-Transition Adults, Ages 22+
I work with post-transition special-needs individuals to develop custom education and development plans, along with one-on-one tutoring, to learn and practice the specific skills necessary to achieve goals and a fulfilling, independent life.
How it Works
My initial consultations are always provided at no charge. During this consultation, I meet the student and their family, discuss current concerns and challenges and future goals. I’ll make a preliminary assessment of the student’s skill level and ability.
Interview and Goal Discovery
Next I conduct an in-depth interview and analysis with both the student and the family. In this interview:
- Determine individual needs
- Establish goals
- Make a plan
- One-on-one time specifically tailored for each individual
- Liaise with community to engender support
- Weekly progress reports to determine completion of goals
How Much Does it Cost?
- First consultation: Always Free
- In-Depth Interview and Analysis: $250.00 flat fee
- One-on-one time determined on a case-by-case basis
