I initially consulted Tatyana Elleseff regarding my son’s language and literacy needs. Her advice was so insightful, and helped us figure out the supports my son needed. Two years later, when I found myself trying to decipher the educational psychologist’s evaluation for my daughter, I knew that Ms. Elleseff would be able to help me figure out the puzzle and determine the next steps. Her consultation was thorough and she provided an analysis of both formal and informal assessments. She also helped me figure out what additional evaluation and education placements should be considered. Ms. Elleseff is an expert on language and literacy. I highly recommend the parent consultation.

Language and Literacy Consultation Parent Testimonial
I consulted with Tatyana Elleseff in preparation for a CSE initial eligibility meeting. I had evaluations from the school district and a private psychologist. I needed help connecting the dots in what was a very nuanced case. There was absolutely something going on with my child‚Äôs language and learning and understanding the reports and what direction to go in next was essential. Ms. Elleseff analyzed the findings with great attention to detail. Ms. Elleseff gave me specific and evidence-based recommendations that finally made sense. She presented possibilities that had not previously been explored. Ms. Elleseff showed extreme expertise in connecting my observation and intuition as a parent with the science of language. She educated me and made recommendations about additional and more specific tests, prepared me for the CSE meeting, and gave me suggestions on the types of interventions that I might consider for my child. I highly recommend her for a parent consultation‚Äù.
