Whether you aim to conduct a comprehensive review of your special education program, perform a targeted analysis of your program’s finances and staffing, or develop your special education policy and procedures, Public Consulting Group’s (PCG) special education consulting team offers solutions to help you meet your objectives, and the needs of your students.
Leveraging 30 years of experience in the field, PCG will help you develop a more effective special education program through a comprehensive, rigorous review of your current practices – focusing on instructional delivery, support for teaching and learning, accountability, and operational efficiencies. We provide you with custom reports, actionable recommendations, and implementation support for special education program improvement.
Our reviews are collaborative by design, and we work side-by-side with you to help define the challenges, specify goals and develop effective, outcome-driven strategies. We help you to answer essential questions about student progress and program effectiveness, pinpoint specific areas of strength, and identify improvement targets.
Our review approach is multidimensional, emphasizes the participation of multiple stakeholders, and includes both quantitative and qualitative data collection. It is grounded in our experience and research in best practices.
We work closely with you to customize the review design so you get the answers
to your district’s essential questions. We offer:

program effectiveness and to identify both areas of strength and areas for
improvement in the organization and delivery of these services.
