Get the appropriate educational accommodations your child needs

I am prepared to provide your family with over 12 years of special education advocacy experience. My goal is to provide families with consultation, and assistance to ensure your child with learning challenges receives support and guidance that is appropriate for their needs while building a strong collaborative working relationship with your child's school district.

Advocacy

As a parent advocate, during our initial meetings, I will listen to your concerns and assess your child's education and personal needs. I want to hear about your child's strengths and weaknesses and your interactions with your child's teachers and school district. The next steps would depend on your unique situation, what you would like to accomplish, and how involved you would like for me to be in the process.As your parent advocate, I can represent you in IEP, 504 or ETR school district meetings. I will work to build a positive working relationship between you, your child’s teacher, and the school district. I can create a written action plan with recommendations and resources to help guide you through the process of implementing accommodations for your child as an alternative option.Working along your side, I want to create the best solutions for your family and help your child accomplish the goals you have envisioned for them
