Educational / Therapeutic Consultants
Educational /Therapeutic Consultants – An educational / therapeutic consultant is an independent consultant who helps parents and students with academic planning. The majority of educational consultants are located in the United States and in the United Kingdom.
Some work with both American students and students from other countries who are interested in coming to the United States to study. While some educational consultants are generalists, many specialize in assisting particular kinds of students or particular educational needs. For example some consultants focus exclusively on assisting students with college admissions and planning, some on students seeking a private secondary school, and yet others specialize in students who are adopted, have behavioral concerns, clinical needs, eating disorders, family discord, health concerns, and/or learning challenges. Other consultants provide advising services for college students seeking admission to graduate school. Fees for consulting services vary widely. Some consultants charge an hourly fee, while others offer an “all inclusive” package that may include unlimited hours of service. Some consultants offer a sliding scale based on family income, or offer pro bono services to low income students. Families considering hiring an educational consultant should carefully assess the qualifications and experience of individual consultants. In addition to looking at a consultant’s experience and professional affiliations, families need to also ask for references from past clients.
Consultants need to be clear about their counseling process, educational philosophy, fees, and expectations at the beginning of the relationship.
