Educational Consultant meets with a special education teacher to offer insights.

At the Watson Institute, our team of consultants is composed of veterans in the special education and behavioral health fields. Their combined knowledge spans decades of experience working in schools, in special education, and as educators and behavior analysts. 

Our consultants prepare a variety of resources, strategy guides, and educational modules for families and educators alike to use in supporting students with disabilities. 

Over the years, their expertise has been shared in various publications, covering a number of topics including sensory input, voice volume moderation, and working with your child’s educational team. 

Additionally, all of the Learning Tip resources and strategies are the result of the expertise and experiences of this talented team of consultants. 

We appreciate your continued support and subscription to the Watson Institute’s Learning TIps and your insightful feedback on ways we can improve them to ensure they remain a helpful resource to you and your family and/or educational teams!
