Disability & Testing Accommodations

We provide a comprehensive consultation service for completing your application for reasonable testing accommodations due to physical, psychological, or cognitive disability. Testing accommodations can be requested for college, graduate school, and standardized tests including but not limited to the ACT, SAT, LSAT, GRE, GED, and Praxis exam.

Insurance & School Appeals

Youths in residential treatment made up 14 percent of the total population of youths in placement, but insurance companies and schools do not immediately cover residential treatment or home health aides without clear proof of medical necessity. Without incurring much expense, claimants can achieve more affordable case resolutions through rigorous case evaluation and effective negotiation insurance risk adjusters and appeals specialists.

With years of experience, we have the capabilities and expertise to resolve your child's placement matter.  We are proud to help shape and improve the educational well being of our clients.
