Creative Educational Solutions


Our team at Dean Doering & Associates is dedicated to finding creative options that can enhance your child's life and introduce new possibilities to your educational planning. Many bright students suffer from chronic academic underachievement. Educational placement services span the full continuum: from the highest functioning students in the most challenging and gifted schools and colleges to those with specialty learning needs and to students in crisis. We help students with specialty learning needs achieve their full potential and reclaim their highest level of function and happiness. Even the most successful students benefit from timely guidance and planning.
