FamilyLight sm is a special needs consulting service for parents struggling with the psychological, behavioral, or maturity issues of a son or daughter. More specific examples might include a child who is painfully shy or fragile in some way but not a behavior problem. Others have had an isolated behavioral incident that requires a change of school but are not special needs students in any conventional sense. Not nearly all of our clients are specifically Special Needs children in public school terms but all have some kind of need that is special. Complex psychiatric issues may or may not be involved. Some of our clients have substance abuse issues, but certainly not all. A very few have also been involved in criminal activity, although most have not. Our primary role is to help families develop and implement a plan for resolving these presenting issues. Frequently, but not always, this involves referral to residential or inpatient services.
At the core of FamilyLight is a consultant’s consultant with a national and international reputation, a unique background, unique skill and a unique approach, plus a highly skilled support team.
Tom Croke, our consultant, brings several special resources to you. Most consultants offer none of the following resources. We know of none who offer all of them.
Tom possesses a unique set of experiences:
· An entire career interacting with therapeutic services, not just education.
· A former therapeutic facility manager
· A former marketer for therapeutic facilities
· A parent of a very difficult child (Reactive Attachment Disorder)
· A former university admission officer (Brown University)
· Forty years of advocating for parents and their children.
While most who do work similar to ours use the title "Independent Educational Consultant" or "IEC," we prefer "Special Needs Consultant." We think it is more descriptive of what we actually do.
