Services for Families

Do you need help ensuring that your child is able to get the best educational programs and services available? I can help.

I advocate for families to help ensure that their special needs children receive the best educational programs and services available. My services for families include:

In consultation with the family and educators, I can:

  • Synthesize developmental history, interpret previous and current evaluations, review school history and evaluate information necessary to formulate educational recommendations,
  • Prepare original draft IEPs for parents and educators,
  • Critique and provide input into existing IEPs,
