Introductory Phone Call with Special Education Consultant:

         Contact me to discuss your child's experiences, your concerns, and what challenges your child is facing. The goal of this introductory phone call is to better understand your current concerns and to provide parents with the option of moving forward. 

          I have vast experience and knowledge when it comes to the realm of Special Education, and I truly love helping students and families navigate the complex world of Special Education. I am passionate about parents become informed advocates for their children. Under federal law, students with special needs are entitled to an array of resources, tools, services, accommodations, modifications, etc, which often times are not provided unless mandated by parents. I am a firm believer that students who receive Special Education deserve to be treated with respect that is equal to any other student by all adults, educators, and youth no matter if they are at home, in the classroom, or out in society. Whether you are in need of a introductory phone call, a one time consultation, or in need of ongoing special education consultant services, I am flexible and here to help parents any way that I can.

 

            As a student who grew up solely enrolled in Special Education classes who then became a Special Education teacher as an adult, I know through first hand experience that no educator will advocate for your child's rights and continuously follow through with what is truly best for your child like a parent. This is 100% a parent's job. I hope to do everything I can to help you and your child get the support you need in order to achieve your child's short term goals and long term goals.
