Let Me Help You To Be the Advocate

Let us help you to become an advocate. We help you ask the right questions and help you advocate to receive the right services that your child is entitled to.

As a parent, you are your child’s best advocate. You know your child’s strengths and challenges, and you can help identify and push for the resources your child needs to succeed. When families advocate for their children, they learn to present information and make requests in a focused way to ensure that something important gets done.
