Our Process

At Triangle Educational Planners, we help make objective decisions by  following a process. The first step is a meeting with the student and  family to identify needs and determine goals. After that, we review your  student's educational records and make referrals for psychoeducational  evaluation and/or tutoring as needed. In addition, we are available to  consult with other professionals. Regular follow-up meetings, in person  or by phone, allow for further discussion of concerns and interests.

With the needs of the individual in mind, and after studying a range  of appropriate options, we then make recommendations on educational  environments that best meet the student's personal and academic  criteria.

Before, during, and after enrollment, we provide ongoing  communication and student advocacy. Our personal involvement enables us  to work effectively on behalf of each student.
