Independent educational consultants begin with an evaluation to help your student identify strengths and weaknesses as well as educational objectives, choices, and plans.

Testing: When appropriate, the consultant will recommend testing for purposes of psychological or academic assessment. IECs may either administer these tests themselves, or make a referral to other professionals for testing.

Options: The IEC will work with your family to consider the full range of educational possibilities, and provide a broad selection of pertinent information for consideration.

Advice: IECs give students and families unbiased advice and recommendations based on their professional judgment of a student’s needs and abilities. IECA member consultants are compensated directly by their clients, and do not receive any compensation from educational institutions.
