Elm Street Placements - January/February 2020

Global Connections

Where in the World Are Lucy, Kathy, and Fran?

Whether they are jetting off across the globe or traveling just miles down the highway, our educational and therapeutic consultants are dedicated to engaging with developmental, educational, and mental health professionals. Here’s where that commitment took Lucy Pritzker, Kathy Nauta, and Fran Schlenoff this fall. LEADING PROFESSIONALS Lucy spent the first week of November at the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) Fall Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The conference is an opportunity for the Elm Street experts to continue their education and engage with fellow educational and therapeutic professionals. During the conference, the IECA board of directors held an annual meeting to provide strategic and programmatic leadership to the organization. Lucy serves on this distinguished board with other consulting professionals. COLLABORATING LOCALLY This fall, the team visited over 10 therapeutic and specialized schools in the region. By establishing relationships with this wide variety of schools, our team is better able to serve our clients with firsthand knowledge of the specific offerings available within each school or program. For schools that we already have experience with, these

visits allow us to stay well-informed on programming and curricular updates, so that we can ensure the right fit for each client.

NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL VISITS There are no bounds when it comes to how far we will travel to engage with therapeutic programming. Fran and Lucy flew to Michigan this fall to tour four educational and therapeutic programs, including an arts-focused school, a mental health center, and two college prep schools. Fran also traveled to learn more about a program in Florida and joined Kathy in Salt Lake City, Utah, for further engagement. Kathy also toured seven schools in Vermont this fall. Kathy’s travels even took her overseas to Portugal! Kathy toured the Pacia Life Program, which is focused on cultural immersion for young adults. She also visited The Dorm, a young adult program, for its 10- year anniversary celebration. Collaboration is the cornerstone of our work at Elm Street Placements. If you would like to learn more about the programs we visit or would like to suggest a networking opportunity, please call 908-228-2212.
