Jeanne Hughes RN


educational consultant

I can provide you with first-hand knowledge of schools and programs gleaned from years of experience.  Since 1998, I have been traveling throughout the US visiting schools and programs.

I want to get to know you and your child.  What are your child's strengths, interests?  What are your goals, both short term and long term for your child? What is keeping you up at night?

My contract with you is on-going.  I will be available to you throughout your child's placement, including helping plan for whatever transitional placement or aftercare will follow.

No pressure.  take a deep breath.


As a parent, I understand what a gut-wrenching situation making an out-of-home placement for a child can be for a family.  You're probably feeling overwhelmed.  We will proceed at a pace that is comfortable for you.  My goal is to simplify the process for you so that you can focus on making the right choice for your child.
