Educational Consultants - A Trusted Resource

By Stephen C. Schultz


The sun peaked over the top of the building as police cars with flashing lights barricaded the street. Spectators had gathered along the curb and small American flags waved in the hands of children. The sky was blue and there was a slight breeze that made the balmy 65 degree weather feel like 62. It was a beautiful November morning in Dallas Texas.

On the corner, the old book depository building stood tall.

While I could imagine what it must have been like on that fateful day in November of 1963, I was actually standing on that same corner in November of 2011. The crowds, flags and marching bands were from a Veterans Day Parade making its way down the street.

I was in Dallas attending the semi-annual conference of the Independent Educational Consultant Association. IECA members gather from across the globe to interact, learn, network and refine their skill and knowledge in working with families and teens. Educational consultants, schools, universities and treatment programs all come together to foster professional relationships and learn from one another.
Some educational consultants specialize in boarding school and college placements, assisting families in obtaining the best educational opportunities available for their student. Other educational consultants specialize in working with students that have special needs. Quite often, families encounter a teen or young adult that struggles with depression, anxiety, substance abuse or a combination of emotional setbacks.

Educational consultants can offer direction in navigating these emotionally turbulent waters and provide assistance in obtaining appropriate clinical and educational solutions. If you haven’t heard of an educational consultant you can learn more here. Check it out!

As an educational consultant, I think you have written a very informative article. However, in addition to IECA, another very reputable organization to find an educational consultant is HECA or Higher Education Consultants Association. For help with choosing colleges, essays and applications, college tours, learning disabilities, student athletes, and financial aid and scholarships, educational consultants have the time and expertise to make a difference.
