About New table consulting
New Table Consulting, LLC was founded by Bob Berk to help children get the care, attention and services they deserve in the public school system. In the last decade in New Orleans, much attention has been paid to improving outcomes for all children - including those with special needs. Countless efforts have been made by teachers, administrators, policymakers, elected officials and watchdog groups to improve the quality of services offered in our public schools for those with special needs. These efforts have led to improvements for many students in many schools. Less effort, however, has been made to help parents advocate for their own children. This is our goal - to improve the public school experience for students with special needs one child at a time by helping their parents gain the skills they need to effectively advocate.
