They help train parents and schools on how to create an accessible environment for children with neurological disabilities, 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.
Help parents navigate through the complex special education system by providing information and advice, help understanding the initial referral and identification, the testing and evaluations, and IEP and 504 meetings process.
There is an annual membership fee to join.
