DRT Consultant - Bridging the gaps between home and school
About Us
We are a small grassroots business, which means we are not for profit!  We have no affiliation or commitment to any school or district.  We advocate strictly on behalf of the parents and your child's needs.  I have created this website in hopes that you will refer to it with any special education service related concerns, comments, or questions you might have.  Call now to get more information on how we can help you obtain the appropriate services your child deserves!

Our Philosophy
Empowering you to make the transformation from Tears to Cheers by advocating for your child so that he/she will receive an appropriate individualized education plan and services in order to be successful in their academic environment and future endeavors.
