Frequently Asked Questions

Teacher/Parent Consultations

How do we access consultation? 
A teacher can call Project Enlightenment and ask for a referral form.  Both the parent and teacher sign and complete the form and return it to Project Enlightenment.  A consultant will contact the school to plan an observation.
What does an observation look like? 
A consultant will contact the child’s teacher and schedule a day and time to observe in the classroom.  Following the observation, the consultant will meet with the child’s teacher and parent(s) to develop strategies that will best support the child in the classroom so that she or he experiences success.
How do I make a referral? 
Referrals are initiated by teachers of preschool, childcare center and kindergarten classrooms in Wake County with parents written consent.
