Independent Educational Consultantsare resources for families who are considering alternative educationalor living options for their children, specializing in teens and young adults with substance abuse problems, high-risk or defiant behavior and 'failure to launch' issues.
Founder Shannon Quinby specializes in the placement of struggling teens and young adults into private, therapeutic programs or schools. She gathers information about the student and family through testing, reports and conversations with the parents, teachers and school administrators, therapists and students themselves (if possible) to determine what type of placement is most appropriate. From there, she recommends specific programs and/or schools. She will not recommend a program she has not personally visited and evaluated.
