Parenting a Vulnerable Child is a Daunting Challenge



Parental Support and Guidance
Navigating the network of special education services and state agency resources can  rapidly overwhelm parents who face the process alone.  Specialized advocacy is often required for  children and adolescents with severe psychological and behavioral difficulties. With the guidance of an experienced  advocate,  parents  can feel  greater confidence about their participation in the advocacy process and more optimistic about their ability to change their child’s future for the better.

Collaboration and Communication
With a clear focus on critical concerns, an advocate's presence can help Special Education TEAM  members reach agreements about supporting a  child who struggles with complex emotional disabilities.

Dispute Resolution
Disputes can be more readily resolved when a student's psychological disabilities  are thoroughly  documented and objectively presented in the context of school and state agency mandates.  Professional advocacy includes participation at mediation and preparation for appeals.
