Educational Consultation and Special Needs Advocacy

Well, our son is about to graduate middle school-stayed on the honor roll the whole way. I want you to know that when we watch him at the ceremony, we will be thanking you in our hearts. He has come so far. Today he is happy, much lighter of spirit, and STAYING IN SCHOOL! He does his homework independently and is looking forward to high school. Much better scenario. Thank you!

Identifying and obtaining appropriate placement and services is a complex process. After an intake meeting with parents in our office, we assist them to determine the best services for their child by:

  • Reviewing school records and assessment results
  • Observing the child at school
  • Meeting with the child or teenager
  • Conferring with teachers, school personnel and other professionals who know and have worked with the child
  • Attending IEP meetings to explain and represent the child's needs and help others to understand the parents' expectations of the child's school experience
  • Referring parents to outside professionals and agencies for independent evaluations and services when necessary
  • Holding strategy sessions
  • Ensuring school personnel follow the legal process and that due process rights are upheld
  • Conferring with parents about mediation or due process
  • Providing ongoing support and advocacy including attending annual IEPs, and follow-up support.
  • Special needs relocation advice
