Who are we?

Our organization is unique.  We are advocates and parents of children with disabilities who have been in the trenches. We understand the importance and difficulty of ensuring the special education needs of students are met. So explore our site and see just how different we are.

Special Education

Special education is designed to level the playing field for students with special education needs by providing services, supports, accommodations, and specialized instruction. Understanding what services a student is entitled to and ensuring that students are receiving what they are entitled to can be a struggle.

Parents
Navigating schools and understanding special education can be difficult. The special education process can be overwhelming and confusing.
 
 Parents are the most important part of the process for creating Individual Education Programs (IEP) for children with special needs. When parents have knowledge and understanding of the process, their participation is more meaningful. Their voice is heard.

Advocates
Special Education Advocates are the professionals supporting parents. Having someone knowledgeable at the table can make a huge difference in ensuring parent participation in the process. With understanding and expertise, advocates collaborate with parents to educate, inform, and navigate special education. Advocates assist parents and provide information to enable parents to make decisions so their child's education results in positive outcomes.
