If you are a parent or caregiver of a child with special needs and you have questions about the special education system, IEP's, LRE's, FAPE and all the acronyms associated with special educational services then give me a call!

I am a parent of 18 year old son with Asperger Syndrome who has been through the special education system. In 1999 I began my journey and learned how to become an advocate.  Like you, I needed to make sure my child was receiving the supports and services he needed under IDEA and state regulations. 

I have walked in your shoes and know the challenges you face, but there will be victories once you arm yourself with information you need to become the advocate you need to be for your child.  Then they can advocate for themselves one day and others too!

Call me with your questions, thoughts and experiences!!

Remember knowledge is power!

Talk to you soon!
