PEAK Exceptional Services offers Educational Consultation services to assist parents in fully understanding and advocating for their children’s needs in the school system. We specialize in working with children and teens, particularly gifted and twice exceptional (2e) students and those who struggle with ADHD and learning disorders.
Parent consultation offers an important resource for struggling families who are confused about the process of getting their children help within the school system, such as obtaining a 504 Plan or an Individualized Education Program (IEP).
If you are worn out by conflict with the school and discouraged about their lack of understanding of your child’s needs, we can help.
Gifted, 2e, and differently wired children have unique struggles that are often missed or misunderstood by teachers, healthcare providers (including mental health professionals), friends, and family. It’s no wonder that they have trouble getting the supports they need within the school system!
An Educational Consultation with Dr. Lucero, the founder and Executive Director at PEAK, will help you understand how to seek help for your child. We offer a review of assessments completed with in the school system, and/or with other providers. This helps us to provide you with a clear understanding of the process of seeking a 504 Plan or an IEP for your child.
Let’s face it – our public school system is not designed to truly meet the needs of neurodivergent kids. Every child is unique and has their own personality and set of strengths and challenges. In reality, the public school system was designed to meet the needs of “in the box” students.
If your child is gifted, twice-exceptional, or somehow differently wired, understanding their needs are often “outside the box.” The public school system is struggling to keep up with changing times, and many of our kids simply fall through the cracks of the system that was not designed for them.
YET, there are laws in place – both federally and at the state level – that protect our children’s rights to receive a “Free and APPROPRIATE Education.” Sadly, many school systems do not seem to follow the guidelines that are in place for identifying and meeting every student’s unique needs.
That’s where PEAK can help. We understand the laws, and we have experience in helping advocate for schools to follow them.
You don’t have to muddle through this by yourself.
We understand the complex nature of advocating for neurodivergent children.
