Has a teacher or other educator ever said those words to you? It might have come out a little differently, such as, “She’s doing ‘C’ work, which is all we need to achieve this year.” And you thought, “REALLY?”
Actually, there is a strong chance that your intuition about your child is correct. Schools measure student progress against a standard scale, which can be quite different than your own child’s capacity to learn. Learn how to measure student progress, where your child’s capacity to achieve becomes the appropriate and accepted standard, at our upcoming mini-seminar series, “Pro Secrets: Empower Your Advocacy”.
Cost is only $10 for each session—attend one or all three—to cover basic costs. Coffee and Recovery Room bakery items included, so think of it as a nice Saturday breakfast, out, with benefits! Be sure to call (870) 918-3431 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your space.
Do you get to a school meeting about your special needs child, only to discover everyone else using terms you do not understand? Or, do you ever feel like the real meeting happened before you arrived? Maybe the paperwork bores and confuses you and then you miss school deadlines. Does it seem as if your child’s square peg gets forced into a round hole?
Well, you aren’t the only one. We get it. We also know that you can learn to read the signs and understand instructional and related service opportunities available to every special needs child. We can help older children learn how to advocate for themselves, in many instances. With the experience and expertise of Advocate & Educate, LLC, as your child grows, your advocacy skills can grow, too.
You can join our Advocate’s Circle today for the benefits of how we can help you handle school problems with confidence, avoiding lifetimes of frustration and unmet needs! Our comfortable facilities and developing, web-based learning opportunities for members make learning a time-saving, productive experience for you.
