Mission

The name Turning Points Educational Solutions was chosen to remind us that we each have the power to make turns or changes in our lives that lead to growth and success. As learners and individuals, we all face challenges. Once we have a clear picture of our unique strengths and needs, we can face those challenges by pursuing personalized strategies and interventions that allow us to more easily navigate our own path to success.

Our mission is to help clients identify their individual strengths and challenges in order to advocate for their needs, study and learn more efficiently, access the most effective interventions and services, and perform at the level of which they are capable.  We provide comprehensive evaluations and individualized interventions/services to help clients navigate their own path toward lifelong success.
