SPECIAL EDUCATION ADVOCACY
(Currently not accepting new clients for Advocacy work.)
Some parents find their local schools well-equipped to handle their children's special needs. For others, getting their child the help he or she requires is an enormously trying and emotional experience.
I help families of children who have suspected disabilities or who already have an IEP wade through the educational process to ensure their child’s educational rights are being met. I advise families on what to do when they believe their child is not making progress, I can also attend school meetings with you to help you work collaboratively with your district. My role, as your advocate, is to help support you and help you understand the educational data in your child’s school file. I will work with you prior to meetings to set goals, and then accompany you to make sure those goals are met.
