Dore Frances is an accomplished, passionate educational consultant and child rights advocate. Through her company, Horizon Family Solutions, she provides child rights advocacy services, educational consulting and family and parent coaching services to a rapidly expanding roster of clients in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia.
With a diverse background, Dore is uniquely qualified to understand the lives, needs and challenges of a wide range of families and troubled teens. Earlier in her career, Dore spent time running her family’s veterinarian practice and doing corporate training and marketing work in Silicon Valley during the dot-com boom.
Currently, Dore is nearing completion of a new book uncovering and evaluating therapeutic, residential and wilderness treatment facilities.
The meticulously-researched book, One Size Does Not Fit All, is a comprehensive resource on current treatment programs available in the U.S.
From her research, interviews and focus groups, the book will also include a list of recommended facilities and programs endorsed by Dore Frances.
The printed book will have a companion eBook – available at www.OneSizeDoesNotFitAll.info – which will be maintained with current information and reviews of treatment facilities and serve as a point of reference for families, parents, teens and the professionals who support them.
An active speaker, presenter, certified coach, educator and columnist, Dore has won numerous professional awards for her work, including awards from CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates).
Of Dore’s accomplishments, she is especially proud of her experience as a monthly columnist for The Teen View in the Family Resource News (Monterey, CA), her current widely-distributed newsletter, her acceptance into the American Bar Association (even though she isn’t an attorney!), and an article published in Seventeen magazine in June 2008.
