Step one: Exploration

  • Exploratory/compatibility call - discuss what you are looking for from an educational consultant and assess the fit of our organization with your family’s needs.
  • Call with consultant to further discuss.

Step two: Needs assessment

  • Schedule initial consultation or home visit.
  • The Goldberg Center visits are at home or our offices or we conduct a video interview with the appropriate members of the family, often including the child/teen/young adult requiring assistance.
  • Prior to this interview we will review all materials available including but not limited to: IEP, assessment testing, transcripts etc.
Step three: Recommendations

Step three: Recommendations

  • The Goldberg Center conducts interviews with members of your child’s team including medical providers, mental health professionals, teachers, and extended family members.
  • The Goldberg Center reaches out to schools and programs to assess fit. Before providing a family with a recommendation for program placement, a Goldberg Center consultant will already have had preliminary conversations with the program about the individual and will have identified this program as a likely option for the individual.
  • The Goldberg Center will offer the family a number of options to consider and will help guide the family through the selection process.

Step four: Progress tracking

  • The Goldberg Center consultants can maintain contact with schools/families to assess the individual's progress within the chosen program. During this time, the consultant will likely contact the school, individual, and/or family for updates and support.
