What Sets Migdal Consulting Apart?
I can empathize with what you are going through because as a Mom of three diverse learners, I have felt the same way. I have also felt frustrated as an educator before I learned about the science of reading. I have a unique understanding that sets me apart from other educational consultants because I have sat in three seats at the IEP table. I was a special education teacher, general education teacher, current parent of dyslexic children, and now I sit in the fourth seat as an educational consultant. I believe in working as a team and offering my support to everyone at the table because that is what is best for the student.
I will consult, support, and advocate for you to make sure your child receives FAPE.
You don’t have any idea how powerful you are and what you can achieve.
You literally cannot give in to your fear. You literally have got to walk over it, step on it’s face and keep moving toward where you want to go and eventually, if I can get there, there’s no reason you can’t get there.

How Can Migdal Consulting help as a Special Education Consultant?
I can review your IEP, testing, and data. In addition, I can provide additional educational testing. Furthermore, I can attend IEP meetings and help you during the meetings to make you a true partner with the school team. Knowledge is power and I will teach you how to maneuver through the process to help you help your child. Do you know what is going on during instruction? I can also observe and write a report. If you have taken 60 hours of Bowman Orton Gillingham “Plus”, then I can help you receive certification by CERI by providing a practicum. Finally, I tutor students in writing, comprehension, and Bowman Orton Gillingham “Plus”. Do you need professional development at your school, then I can provide individualized learning for educators.
