The special education system can feel unbelievably overwhelming sometimes, especially when also dealing with all the emotions surrounding your most precious thing, your child. I know because I am the mother of three wonderful children who have each faced their own learning differences in the school system. I have learned the legal nuances of a system that can be intimidating, confusing, and painfully slow. I understand the frustration of feeling like no one is listening and I can help.
I will teach you the language schools use when talking about your child and their program. I will help you to understand what each of the acronyms means. Together we will work to obtain an appropriate program for your child so that they can make meaningful progress given their unique circumstances.
