In the Interest of the Student

Redefining Advocacy for Students with Disabilities in the 21st Century

The Special Education Services journey can be challenging for parents. The regulations, the lingo, and the IEP meetings can be overwhelming.

We work with parents, not for parents, to navigate an increasingly complex special education system. We help parents become more active participants in IEP team meetings, so they can better advocate for their children. Our approach strengthens the relationship between parents and educators to ensure future collaborations remain focused where they should be, on the child-centered decision-making process.

We have decades of experience with the special education system at the federal, state, and local level. We support parents and the educators who serve their children, from the time a child may be eligible for services through when an adult student exits the school system. We believe solutions are best achieved collaboratively at the classroom, campus, and district levels.

If you believe this advocacy approach can help enhance the role of parents in their child’s education, please complete our contact form (name, email, phone number, and a brief statement expressing your need for assistance).

Once we receive the contact form, we will email you within one calendar day to schedule a phone consultation. There is no cost the first time we speak with you.

During the initial telephone conversation, we listen to understand your current situation so we can determine how we may best assist you. Any fees depend on the course of action to address individual situations and needs.
