These "consultants" watch your kid play and interact, then give suggested activities for improvement, such as "encouraging the 4-year-old to speak directly with a waiter to place her own restaurant order" or "handing the money to the cashier at the grocery store to emphasize more natural interaction with adults."

Wow -- you couldn't make this up if you tried!

Paying a consultant to insure your child gets into Kindergarten is RIDICULOUS. Why would you pay for something that your child gets automatic or are there states that do not require children to go to Kindergarten? Shame on those who charge for this type of service and I feel sorry for those who actually look into or pay for this service.

I wouldn’t pay for that. Those things are regular activities for kids to do when parents wish to help them develop social skills. Next thing they will tell me kids should Buy Viagra Online to know how it feels to fail in intimacy.
