General Information
Service Description: 
We help train parents and schools on how to create an accessible environment for the neurologically impaired child. We help parents and schools understand that the behaviors and challenges they are experiencing are part of a disability and are not volitional. We provide advocacy services at ARD (special education) meetings by attending in person or by phone for members. These services can include reviewing your concerns, providing you with a clear understanding of your options, helping you get the special services needed, developing or revising a behavioral plan, helping you interpret IEP (Individual Education Program) goal progress or lack of progress, helping write new goals or correcting existing goals so they are objectively measured, and helping write correspondence on your behalf to the schools to express concern.
