What are Consultations & Advocacy?

The world of special education can be stressful for children, parents, and educators if they aren’t equipped with the proper resources. Studies also report time and time again that students with special education diagnoses are more successful when the family is surrounded with support and guidance. We have individual consultations and personalized advocacy to give you access to the tools you need to help your child thrive as you navigate special education situations. Our advocates are all experienced educators and psychologists with over a 100 years of combined experience. We can help you create the optimal learning environment for your child by supporting you through IEPs, diagnostic reports, 504 plans, and various educational meetings.

What Is An IEP?

If your child has a learning disability, an Individualized Education Program (IEP) is crucial to their future success. It can be immensely frustrating for a child, parent, and teacher to feel helpless when trying to provide a fitting learning environment. An IEP helps remove the frustration that stems from one-size-fits-all solutions and will eliminate issues that doesn’t contribute to your child’s success. An IEP should be followed by the student, teacher(s) and other educators involved, and its specific guidelines will aid in tracking the student’s progress.
