Latham Consulting

I sometimes have to write distressing (to me anyway) emails to families who are reaching out to Latham Centers for services for their child; school-age or adult. I wish we could provide services to everyone who seeks us out. Sometimes it is because we don’t have an opening. Often it is because the person lives out of state and, to borrow a movie title…It’s Complicated.

I wish it was easier. I wish we could say yes frequently. The fact of the matter is this can be a major challenge for families. Everyone who needs Latham can’t come here. We are not centrally located and we aren’t a huge program. In fact, one of the things that makes us unique is our size. So, the question we struggled with is how can we, knowing that demand is far greater than we can provide on Cape Cod, expand services to meet the growing requests coming in? Latham Consulting. You might not be able to come to us, but we will do our best to come to you, your child’s school, residential provider or day program. Where ever the issue is, we can assess the situation, make recommendations and teach those unfamiliar (or inflexible) with PWS some of our strategies and best practices. Allow us to use our expertise to help you. If you think this might be an appealing idea or  you are wondering about the costs, please feel me to contact me at: cgallant@lathamcenters.org.

Hang in there. We are able to help.
