Our Mission

Advocating       Educating        Empowering 

At Northwest Educational Consulting (NEC), we believe strongly in the right every child has to a high quality education. It is our mission to guide families through the IEP/504 process to strive towards the highest quality education for their unique learners. As a parent or guardian, you may find yourself questioning if your child is receiving adequate IEP/504 services. You might wonder if your child is receiving appropriate accommodations, how to advocate for your child to receive paraprofessional support, or how to discuss more inclusion opportunities with your child's school team. At NEC, we are here to educate and empower you through the process of collaborating with your child's school to  ensure that your unique learner is receiving the IEP/504 services that best meet their needs. We consult with families to determine how to best advocate for their child to meet their unique needs within the school setting. 

What we can provide for you: 

  • Reading and reviewing IEPs and 504s

  • Walking families through the IEP/504 process and explaining parents' rights
