College Consulting Services Available for Neurodiverse Teens

Newport Beach, CA (August 11, 2020) – College consulting services for neurodiverse students are now available to Poppy Life Care clients through a partnership recently developed with Costa Mesa, California-based Royal College Consulting. The college consulting services are a new addition to Poppy Life Care services available to adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other conditions that impact learning abilities.“The goal of attending college is something that should be possible for all students, including those on the autism spectrum,” said Erica Solis, Poppy Life Care Founder and Executive Director. “One of things we strive for as a community resource is to bring our special needs families together with the tools and resources to address their unique needs and concerns. I’m excited that we’re able to include another service to help adolescents who may otherwise not have access to this service.”

Royal College Consulting’s services available to Poppy Life Care families include comprehensive college planning, which, for students with autism spectrum disorders or learning disabilities, typically require a level of preparation that differs from that of neurotypical students.

“One of the most important things that parents of a special needs child should know is that the road to college does not begin in high school,” said Janice Royal, Independent Education Consultant and Founder of Royal College Consulting and herself the parent of a daughter with an Asperger’s diagnosis. “It is a long and sometimes arduous process, and I know from personal experience that college planning resources for families challenged with LD, ADHD, Dyslexia, and ASD can be hard to find. I’m grateful that my partnership with Poppy Life Care can enable me to reach more of those families.”

Exclusively available to Poppy Life Care families is special pricing on Royal College Consulting’s regular Comprehensive College Planning and hourly fees.
