An educational consultant can help guide parents through the special education process. They may evaluate or observe your child in his/her educational setting and may attend Team meetings to offer educational advice regarding your child’s unique needs. Education consultants generally have a degree in education. Some may also be parents of special needs children and/or be trained in children’s rights by the Federation for Children with Special Needs or another special education organization.
