Educational programs and Therapeutic Residential Schools can be confusing given the wide array of options. What services are necessary? Who are the staff? Why certain laws and regulations apply to certain factions of the educational process (e.g., special education) is often unclear and at times seemingly bias. Dr. Burdick has administrated special education programs for years in some of the most prestigious school districts in the US, including Palo Alto Unified. His experience spans K-12 to college and graduate programs. He is a credentialed administrator and school psychologist. Additionally, Dr. Burdick has served as college faculty and is aware of the “best interest” college choices for learning disabled to under-motivated to gifted students. Dr. Burdick provides both successful national, international placements and gap year options. Do not trust court opinion and program placements to unlicensed individuals.
