Every child deserves the opportunity to succeed!

A free and appropriate public education that meets the needs of every individual is a right that each child should be guaranteed. The laws regarding special education at both the State and Federal levels can be confusing and difficult to navigate. It’s important for families of children with special needs to stay well-informed and have the necessary tools to make educated
decisions about getting the appropriate services for their children. 


I strive to help to educate, support and encourage parents to become effective partners with schools in developing appropriate, individualized education programs for their children. As a special education advocate I can provide you with as much or as little support as you desire, from coaching and counseling you to advocate for your child yourself, to actively accompanying you through the process.


Individuals with special needs, and those who are entrusted with their care, spend an enormous amount of time exploring programs, benefits, and government services. This process can be overwhelming. Simply understanding what your child qualifies for, then navigating the special education, public entitlement, or social service systems, may be difficult for families. Having both personal and professional experience in dealing with special needs children , and as a special education advocate I am well positioned to advise and assist your families needs.

As a special education advocate and consultant I am committed to helping parents—who are a child’s best advocates—on how to advocate for their child’s educational rights. My goal is to empower you with the tools you need in order to be successful.


According to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA), every child in the United States has the right to a “free and appropriate” public education in the least restrictive environment possible, provided by the local school district where the child lives. It’s important to note that an “appropriate” education is person-specific. For some children with special needs, an appropriate education may mean total immersion in a mainstream classroom, with very limited modification. For others, it may require additional aids or services within that classroom. For some, it may mean individually tailored instruction in a separate classroom.


Students’ that have academic or physical disabilities should be provided with the tools and services they need as individuals to succeed academically and in society. Every child is part of a community and should be given the opportunity to participate in the same projects and events as every other community member, regardless of any physical or mental limitations they may have.
