Jill Burstein has worked in the field of special education for over 40 years. She is a Certified Educational Planner, the highest accreditation for Independent Educational Consultants.

As she worked at the university level, many of her students were transfers whose colleges did not offer them the level of support necessary for academic success. As Jill began to investigate colleges for her own son with learning disabilities, she realized the information could be shared with other families who had students with learning issues.

More and more students are entering college and schools are offering quality services for students with learning differences. The challenge is to find the institution that best serves the needs of my students. My mission is to assist families in finding that school that best matches the student’s needs.
