Educational Consulting for Parents


Our Mission

Our mission is to mentor and support our clients through their educational problem solving

Our Clients

We work with parents of children experiencing difficulty in school.  These include parents of children in regular education, those who suspect their child may have a disability, and those whose children already have an IEP or a 504 Plan.

About Us

Millwood Group LLC was founded by Al Early in 2013.  During the latter years of a long career as a school administrator, becoming an independent consultant who could assist parents with their problem solving for their children who were having significant negative experiences in school, emerged as a career objective.  This objective became a reality when Al retired from school administration in 2013 and the "Millwood Group" became a limited liability company (LLC) through which Al now provides educational consulting services. 

Areas of Special Interest

We have provided assistance for parents regarding a  wide variety of educational problems.  There are, however, a few areas that are of special interest to us as a result of our professional experiences, past training, and continuing education.  These include:

  • IEP Concerns - Insufficient progress towards achieving goals and closing gaps
  • Section 504 - Inconsistent implementation, insufficient support, transitions from an IEPs
  • Initial Evaluations - Difficulty obtaining an evaluation to determine special education eligibility
  • High School - Academic achievement concerns - graduation requirements - transition planning
  • Third Grade Reading Guarantee - What the TGRG guarantees - minimum or low promotion threshold scores versus proficient scores - promotion via alternate assessments - exempted students

Millwood Group LLC is not a law firm and does not provide legal advice or legal services.
