Advocacy Services
Are you having difficulty getting your child the services you think he deserves?
Do you need some help understanding the IEP process? Are you confused about the goals on an IEP? Do you need some guidance to help you through the IEP and Special Education process?
We can help you decide what is appropriate for your child and advise you about your rights. We will even attend IEP and other school meetings as your advocate.
