Case Consultation

Hammitt School staff offer child-specific consultation to school districts that request assistance in designing effective interventions for particular children and their families. These services are particularly beneficial with children that have multiple disabilities and when the school and family team need an outside party to help them collaborate on a plan that will meet a particular child’s needs. Case Consultation will include record review, meetings with teachers and families, classroom observations, and review of data. Suggested interventions, accommodations, and behavioral strategies are discussed with the educational team. Follow-up meetings can be requested.
