FamilyLight is in the advanced stages of creating new services for the general public and for referring professionals.   This is our description of what we are planning for professional referring professionals, generally educational and therapeutic consultants.    Look here for what we plan for the general public .   

FamilyLight is in the process of creating a communication system for educational consultants, therapeutic consultants, and possibly others with very similar practices who use a different title for their profession.     We intend to demean no other available service, but we believe that we are offering something that has features not otherwise available.

Here are some of those features:

1.    All posts to this service are visible (but only to other participating consultants)  and emailed if desired.    This eliminates the need to summarize and re-post a summary. 

2.   Posts will be categorized.  You will be able to have all prior posts on a given specific topic (for example, a particular school or program) called up so you can review all.   As information accumulates, this will become an extremely powerful data base.  |

3.   Participants have the option of having posts emailed to them – or not – or selectively.   Each participant can elect to have every post emailed, or to have only those on certain topics emailed or none emailed.  All posts are about therapeutic/ special needs issues.   This cuts down or out emails that are of no interest.

4.   Members  can create one or more subgroups  of people for private sharing within that discussion group.   You can limit access to your post to specific people.   That way you can have a discussion of sensitive information with a select limited group of colleagues. (In order to be included those colleagues must have access to this service, however)  

5.   Participating consultants may share information from the forum with other members of their own consulting firm.

6.   Only consultants accepting special needs and/or therapeutic clients are eligible for this service.   This is limited to consultants who do not accept placement fees from schools or programs or other services and report any conflict of interest when they report on a school or program. 

7.   We will not charge for this service at inauguration and have no plans to do so in the  future. 

Feedback is invited. We will publish feedback in good taste, consistent with our standards.  Email

Disclaimer: No  program review, no matter how positive, is a blanket endorsement. No criticism is a blanket condemnation.  When we express our level of confidence in a school or program, that is our subjective opinion with which others might reasonably disagree.  When we assert something as fact, we have done our best to be accurate, but we cannot guarantee that all of our information is accurate and up to date. When we address compliance with our guidelines, you need to remember that these are only OUR guidelines -- not guidelines from an official source.  We have also set the bar very high, and do not expect any school or program to be in total compliance.  It is not appropriate to draw a conclusion of impropriety (or even failure to live up to conventional wisdom) from our lack of confidence in a school or program or from less than perfect conformity to our guidelines.  Some will say we expect too much. Readers are responsible for verifying accuracy of information supplied here prior to acting upon it. We are not responsible for inaccuracies.


We do not specifically endorse UK Shopping. They "sponsor" our counter.
