What if you could transform your child’s school obstacles into educational opportunities?
School can be complicated. But Advocate & Educate, LLC, has one purpose: to assist special needs children, ages 3 to 21, make forward progress on their educational journey. We are here to help parents ensure that their special needs child receives educational experiences which prepare him or her for further education, employment, and independent living, to the highest possible level. Specifically, we can help you throughout, from requests for assessment, deciding on an IDEA or a Section 504 plan, planning individual instruction based on the child’s need, monitoring progress toward goals, and course corrections. We offer experienced assistance with dispute resolution, if necessary. Advocate & Educate, LLC, works to protect and promote the educational rights of children, through principled means such as parental and child training, resource access, individual counseling, and as a last resort, in-person advocacy.
We're here for you! With Advocate & Educate, LLC, you can learn to read the signs and understand the instructional and related service opportunities available to your child at school. We can show you how to effectively advocate for your child without tears or hostility. And with our experience and advanced expertise, as your child grows, your advocacy skills grow, too.
We help you understand the law, so obstacles become opportunities. Then, you take the lead and generate workable plans suited to your child’s unique educational needs.
Your child deserves the best you can give him or her, including the voice that only a parent can give. We can help you do your best, turning obstacles into opportunities. We can show you how, or if the time comes, we can step into your shoes with fully skilled, professionally experienced representation when nothing else will do.
My professional experience centers on education and law, intersecting at special needs advocacy. During my advocacy career, I have successfully advocated for improving educational opportunities for special needs students, their parents, as well as protecting some of their most hard-working Arkansas teachers and guidance counselors.
