Narrative

We are a group practice offering AFFORDABLE special education advocacy services to families of children with special education needs. Over 25 years experience. All of our advocates have completed training through The Federation for Children with Special Needs and are experts in negotiating. Services include consultation, TEAM meetings, mediation, program placement and training. We help families identify the things that get in the way of their child's ability to learn and then negotiate with school systems on behalf of the family to ensure the services necessary are put in place and effectively delivered so their child can be the best that they can be.
