Services I Offer

With You Every Step of the Way

Psychoeducational Evaluations 

Private Evaluations/ I.E.E. Evaluations

At our Education Consulting firm, we specialize in providing psychoeducational evaluations for clients of all ages. These comprehensive assessments include evaluations for learning disabilities, ADHD, and Autism. Our team of experts provides personalized recommendations for your educational plan, which can include IEP or 504 plans. We also offer gifted assessments, college accommodations, and independent evaluations, which can all be done remotely through our telehealth options. We are here to help you achieve your full potential!

Counseling & Coaching Services

For Teens and Young Adults

We all can face problems time to time-related to social relationships, making difficult decisions, and/or managing emotions. This is especially true for clients from diverse academic, social, or cultural backgrounds as well as neurodiverse clients. Counseling services are designed to help older children, teens and young adults (ages 13+)  improve overall mental health. Gen Z and Millennials, I'm here for you! Many of my clients are tweens, teens, and young adults with mild/moderate Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, and/or Autism who want help understanding their identity, managing their emotions, and learning how to deal with everything life is throwing at them currently. Coaching services are for clients with ADHD and Autism and focus on psychoeducation of diagnosis and strategies to help accept & manage symptoms and behaviors. Coaching services are available in all 50 states!

Parent Training & Support

Parent advocacy and consulting

Knowledge is power and it is important to learn more about your child’s unique needs.  What is neurodiversity? How does this relate to my child's differences in learning, behavior, communication and so on? What is an IEP or 504 plan and how can either one help my child? My child has an IEP but I'm not sure I agree with the school, what can I do? These are some common questions that parents have and it's important to know the answers to each one of them.   The best way parents can arm themselves is to know as much as possible about their child's strengths/ needs, and about the special education system. Parenting support & training is geared towards arming parents with knowledge and tools to help support the academic needs, mental health, and wellness of the family. You are not alone in connecting the dots to your child's education. Check out my website solely dedicated to parent advocacy: https://tatumadvocacygroup.com/

Special Education Trainings

Special Education & General Behavior Support

I offer Special Education training for schools that are tailored to meet the needs of your school or district. As an experienced consultant, I work closely with educators to design trainings that cover topics such as special education laws, IEP and 504 plans, and best practices for supporting students with Autism and ADHD. With my expertise and support, you can ensure that your school is equipped to provide every student with the high-quality education they deserve.

What To Expect

 As a Licensed Educational Psychologist, I offer services that truly connect the dots between mental health and academic achievement in school. I am a small business so rest assured you will get the individualized support you need. 

My license allows me to assess and diagnose psychological disorders related to academics & behavior, provide psychological counseling services, consult with educators and parents regarding programming, social, behavior & academic student concerns as well as provide strategies & interventions for special education or gifted students.  My expertise covers a wide range of areas, including Autism, ADHD, behavior, learning disabilities, emotional disabilities, and general mental health services. I offer an individualized, culturally responsive, and a community-based approach to help my clients attain the achievement that they have been looking for. 

Initial consultations are free! Based on the information gathered from the initial consultation, we will create an action plan to move forward, whether that means assessment, parent support, mental health services and/or identifying community resources for additional support.
