Parents Are Asking Questions

Does my child have difficulty focusing during remote learning? Is my child having trouble keeping up with assignments or working independently? Has my child lost interest in learning? Is my child is falling behind?

Our Approach

Kids are often aware of what they cannot do.  We want them to know what they can do. To this end, we offer a practical, results-oriented approach that focuses on your child’s interests. We meet kids where they are and help them develop their confidence. Our goal is to have students define themselves by their strengths, not their weaknesses. 


We have numerous success stories using this approach. Twenty years ago, we began our work together in a multidisciplinary clinic.  At that time, we realized the benefit of collaboration.  Later, when we each worked independently, we continued consulting with each other, to deepen our understanding of learning profiles and strategy development.  CK Curriculum Consultants grew out of this successful relationship built upon professional respect.  

We collaborate with families to promote thinking, creativity, and skill development

Kristina Pappas PhD 

Clinical Neuropsychologist, Educational Consultant

Carol Karp MS, MEd

CCC/Speech – Language Pathologist, Educational Therapist, and Credentialed Teacher


Our Game Plan

Parents can bring us previous evaluations to review or we can evaluate your child using an integrative approach.  Kristina can perform a complete neuropsychological assessment, and/or Carol can perform a speech and language evaluation. These results will be integrated with your goals/observations, teachers’ comments, and your child’s school experience. With this information, we will create your child’s road map to learning


We don’t follow a set learning program. We draw on our broad experience, evidence-based research, and a creative approach, along with your child’s profile to move them forward. We address both skill development and learning strategies. This is not rote learning; it is an active approach to engagement. 

Neuropsychological Assessment 

Do you want to better understand how your child learns? Is there a gap between what your child knows or understands and what he or she can demonstrate in school? Are you curious about the factors that are getting in their way? 

Coaching and Mentoring

Parents are their children’s first teachers, and their role remains essential as their children grow and develop. We offer coaching and mentoring services for parents to help their kids engage during on-line and in-person learning. 

Speech and Language Assessment 

How does your child communicate? What is your child’s communication style? Does your child get joy out of talking to friends and family (social language)? What is your child’s academic language like? 

Kristina made my daughter feel comfortable and relaxed during the testing process, to the point that my daughter thought it was so much fun she was excited to return for updated testing last year.  Carol’s approach to learning is creative and engaging; she really understands how to relate to children and make them excited about the process.
