Special Education Services and Advocacy

for Students With Disabilities


What is a Special Education Advocate?


Special Education Advocates offer support to parents of children with all kinds of disabilities — emotional, social, learning, and sensory — not just physical disabilities. Special education advocates help parents ensure that a child’s special needs are met. They help parents understand available services, interpret test results, and work with schools to plan individualized education programs (IEPs) and 504 plans.  Our advocate is willing to work with non-English speaking families if an interpreter is available.

Advocacy for:

  • Early Intervention

  • Preschool

  • Kindergarten – High School

  • Transition Planning


  • Parental Support

  • Information

  • Referrals

We Believe:

. . . In the philosophy of educational integration for all students with disabilities.

. . . That all students should be offered many opportunities that prepare them to live and participate in the real world.

We Help:

. . . Parents, students, and school districts coordinate reasonable, appropriate, inclusive educational programs.

Special Education Advocacy assistance can be explaining the special education process, attending meetings, providing resources, and any other information as needed for your individual child. Virtual workshops on Special Education and Advocacy are shared on our social media and website.

Transition Planning assistance, information, and resources for school-age students, their parents and family members, in preparation for the transition to adult life and services, post-secondary education and/or training, employment and independent living.
