What is Creative Educational Options?
Creative Educational Options is many things. We are a crisis intervention service for kids on the wrong path.
We offer hope to youngsters who know far too much about academic frustration, social failure, emotional pain, and misguided behaviors.
We’re the service of choice for parents who are losing hope…who see their kids going down the tubes and their dreams for the future evaporating.
We’re the folks who can turn lives around…by matching struggling children, teens and young adults with the best schools and treatment programs available.
Creative Educational Options is your last, best shot at helping your special-needs child.
We accept no fees or commissions from any program to which we make referrals. Our fees are paid solely BY our clients, and our loyalty is solely TO our clients.

She has traveled extensively, visiting hundreds of schools, colleges and treatment programs both within and outside of the United States.
