What is an Educational Consultant?
Educational Consultants help families find the right school or college for their children. Educational Consultants are often utilized to help troubled teens and young adults in finding treatment and therapeutic boarding schools. An educational consultant plays a vital role in helping families find the right kind of treatment. The best place to find a qualified educational consultant is through the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA).
What We Do:
Educational Evaluation: When a client is ready to enter the Northbound Academy we begin with an educational evaluation, to help identify strengths and weaknesses, as well as educational objectives, choices, and plans. Our Academic Director conducts a thorough educational evaluation with each student who enters the program to determine the person’s progress in treatment, stability, and potential school schedule.
Testing: We administer an Enhanced Career Inventory test to each client who enters our program. The results of this test are useful in helping the student determine what they might want their career to be. Our Educational Director reviews the results with each client. When appropriate, our psychologists might recommend more academic and psychological testing to further develop a student’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as determine if any learning disabilities present.
Contact: The Northbound Academy Staff will work with the educational consultant and the client’s family to consider the full range of educational possibilities, and provide a broad selection of pertinent information for consideration in regards to treatment and future schooling.
