Thank you for visiting the Seven Educational Consulting website. We serve the West Kootenay region of British Columbia, providing academic and behavioural services for children and adolescents, as well as consultation and training for parents, teachers, school administrators, and other related professionals. We take a holistic approach to our work and adhere to an evidence-based approach to treatment - meaning that we only employ assessment and intervention methods that have been demonstrated to be effective through rigorous scientific research.
We have expertise and experience working with students facing a wide range of issues: from those with minor behaviour problems or who are simply falling behind in reading or math, to those struggling with poor social skills, learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorders, and other diagnosed disabilities. We offer flexible appointment times on weekdays, weeknights, and weekends to help accommodate your busy schedule. Call or email today to set up a free initial consultation. In the meantime, we hope this site can answer some of your questions and can be a valuable resource for you.
