Assisting Families with Troubled Teens -- Putting the Pieces Together

In times of crisis a barrage of emotions often overwhelms parents. The confusion and desperation associated with a troubled teen can be extremely trying. As alternatives are explored, how do you know what options are available? Of the many forms of intervention, which meet the unique needs of your child?

Educational Consultants help parents build a promising future for their child and their entire family. Educational Consultants are trained experts who possess comprehensive knowledge of placement options. Many consultants specialize in crisis intervention and have extensive experience advising families with children who have behavioral and emotional difficulties. This expertise is used to advise you of the most suitable placement for your child. The consultant thoroughly interviews the family to determine individual concerns and needs.

Getting to know and your child are vital to discovering a solution. Teens who are "acting out" can appear very similar although the underlying roots of the behavior may be quite different. An individualized approach is required to respond to a child's particular needs. A knowledgeable consultant can help you find which programs are suited for your child.

Research is done to find the best fit for your child. Because consultants have helped a variety of troubled youth, teens and young adults, they are aware of a multitude of options and can expeditiously target the best choices. Educational consultants spend time on the road, visiting ranch programs, residential schools, therapeutic programs, schools and more for youth ages 5 to 13, adolescents ages 13 to17, and young adults ages 18 to 28. Not tied to any institution, consultants can concentrate on what is best for your child and provide you with objective options.

After the child has been placed, the consultant follows up to monitor progress. Consultants often work as part of a treatment team in conjunction with therapists and can also serve as supports for parents. Consultants look beyond the current placement and assist in planning for your child's continued progress. Educational consultants advise on all facets of your child's care. This confidential and professional intervention often brings long-awaited direction to troubled families.
