Educational and Therapeutic Placement
When considering placement for one’s child, most parents feel that they have “just this one chance to make the most impact on their child’s life”. They are often overwhelmed with information from brochures, websites, and videos – not really knowing which schools or programs are reputable and which ones just look reputable. Entrusting their child’s care to another must first entail more than an internet connection or risking the choice to chance.
As dedicated educational consultants, 25-30 % of our time is spent visiting and evaluating schools and programs across the United States. Knowing the various nuances of each allows us to bring a wealth of knowledge to the decision making process – especially when determining the most suitable environment for success for each of our clients.

Through the years of working with countless numbers of families, Tamara Ancona identified a huge void in the level of support being offered to her parent clients as they sought appropriate help for their struggling child. Often times, this meant placement outside of the home for their child, consequently altering exacerbating the emotional state of the parents and family. Hearing the cycle of complex feelings these parents were experiencing – from guilt and doubt, to relief and hope; from sadness and fear, to peace and validation –Tamara designed a working model of support services specifically for her clients that otherwise were not available to parents. This changed the course of educational consulting and significantly raised the standard of services offered to those parents needing help.
