District & Private School Based Consultation Services 

When providing services to school districts or private schools, Education Spectrum consultants visit classrooms where individuals/staff need support. In these cases, observations are conducted
and the consultant collaborates with the individual's team to develop programming strategies
for defined areas of need.

This can include social, educational, or behavioral support. These consultation services can be individualized to a student or generalized to a classroom. The length and duration of consultation is a decision for an IEP team, based on a recommendation by our consultants. There are also occasions when classroom consultation can be utilized as follow up to attendees from an Education Spectrum training session.
