There are consultants who do not consider themselves independent because they have a relationship with several programs and whose recommendations and referrals will be for the programs on their roster and from whom they receive a bribe or a fee for sending a client to the program.
Educational consultantsand therapists get bribes, even if they say no. You don't have to legally disclose that information. We can't say that all educational consultants get bribes from programs, but many do. Do social consultants receive commissions? In addition, they do not receive a commission from programs in which students are placed if they provide work experience.
The number of commissions is still small today, even 15 years after they became more frequent. If your consultant and the school are paying commissions, keep this in mind. We do not receive income from the programs themselves. That means there are no referral fees, financial incentives or other benefits. We do not receive “bribes of any kind” from the programs we visit.
With that, you can know that our program recommendations are reinforced by our years in the field, not by loyalty to any particular place. Programs that are desperate for habit regularly use educational consultants for this purpose, and often these are programs that have had bad press, meaning that the job of the educational consultant is to “hard sell” the program to the father, who would otherwise likely avoid the program like the plague. The Restoring Troubled Teen educational consulting team is always available to you, the parent, providing you with professional consulting services at a discounted rate. In addition, most wilderness therapy programs have highly trained clinical staff on expedition or in active and ongoing consultation with the team. However, the reality is that many 'educational consultants' are not qualified in education or behavioral health care; nor are they licensed teachers, therapists, or counselors, etc.
As an Independent Education Consultant, I evaluate all programs and schools to determine if they meet the criteria for the best option for the families I serve. No school or program is perfect, having a consultant while a student is in a program or school helps ensure the best possible experience while keeping the focus on your family's goals. The educational consulting services offered by Restoring Troubled Teens are all about the perfect match. There are many educational consultants who receive hundreds or thousands of dollars from families under the pretext of providing a personalized and independent service, when in reality they only refer families to programs that pay them hundreds or thousands of kickbacks. An educational license: Any program that provides any form of education to adolescents must have an educational license. In fact, there may be substantial variations in rates; for an interim consultant hired by a well-known law firm, the initial fee is INR 24,000, while one from a leading strategy consultant takes home, for example, INR 1,80,000 or more.
As I understand it, the consultant also convinced them to send me directly to a “therapeutic boarding school” directly from nature. If you look at the frequency, duration, and intensity of distressing behaviors, along with their impact on individual and family health and safety, and have already tried many different things, you may be prepared for an educational consultant who can help you create a plan that works. As a parent who was instructed to use an educational consultant and who got caught up in using TTI, I can't even begin to tell them how angry it makes me. Some families continue to work with us through parenting and life counseling services after the consultation is no longer needed.
