Due to the complex nature of kids today, educational advocates are now one of the primary tools that informed-parents seek out during the special education intervention process.
Though anyone can learn the basic laws and rights & responsibilities to advocacy, it is the insightful guidance, intuitive support and collaborative negotiation attributes that are unique to those who have walked the “the first-hand pathway as a special educator" that can make a big difference in getting districts to provide appropriate and effective services for your child.
We can help help families of children with Different Abilities such as:
Ensuring that your child receives the education that he or she deserves is my primary focus. I want every child to reach his/her full potential.
Short consultative services to assist you with a specific problem or issue as related to your child's current educational plan.
An objective pair of eyes on your child’s learning environment can be invaluable in making a case for new services, a change in placement, and more accountability with your child’s IEP, 504 Plan or Behavior Plan.
Please review the tab "The Value of an Observation" under the More tab on the top of this webpage for additional information.
