Special Education Advocacy
Why Seek Consultation & Advocacy Services?
What is my approach and how is it unique?
The research is clear that the family-school relationship is extremely important for a child to make progress and feel included in their school community. This is why I take care in my approach to build and maintain the relationship between parents and the school team. I believe my role is to ensure the parents’ concerns are heard and to provide meaningful input to the team in order for everyone to work together to collaborate. And in those situations where the family-school trust has been affected, I strive to be an objective party to advocate for positive actions that can be taken for the benefit of the child.
My consultative approach is to be your guide through the process and facilitate your relationship with your school. I aim to teach parents how the educational system works and clarify the specific educational needs your child may have. My role is to listen to your concerns through my professional lens and provide you with actionable information. What is important to my child and what works for my family’s goals and values will differ from others; because every situation is different and every family has their own unique needs. This is why I strive to provide information and guidance rather than a prescriptive course of action.
