We have been helping parents navigate the special education and “gifted” maze since 1998, through intuitive – insightful consultation and direct advocacy. Our mission is to assure parents should never go it alone and always feel supported!
Our advocacy practice features a uniquely perceptive understanding of children, their development, the instruction – learning process, and related behavior. As a result, our guidance is instrumental to getting the advocacy job done right whether you are addressing ADD/ADHD, Autism, Social – Emotional Behavior, Specific Learning Disabilities, or any other developmental hurdles found within the IEP or 504 Plan processes.
“Primary responsibility of an effective advocate moves the process from an emotionally-charged conversation, often impacted by frustration & failure, to an evidence-based, innovative decision process; founded upon what works? and mutual understanding: Nothing less is acceptable!”
Due to our comprehensive experience as “insiders”, as principals, teachers, district coordinators, consultants, behavior specialists, (and parents), you will immediately experience a difference working with our support. The level of partnership and collaboration, which develops due to our understanding of the school climate and culture, allows us to serve as a valued member of your child’s intervention team. This is essential when selecting an advocate; for anything else may create an adversarial relationship and establish or reinforce division between the stakeholders across the table. Mutual understanding is the core of effective advocacy!
