If your child’s emotional well-being is directly affecting their school education, I can help you!
There are few parenting experiences more difficult than seeing your child in emotional distress. It can be hard to think straight and hard to believe that other adults will understand, care enough, or know what to do.
I understand because I have been in your exact shoes. Acting as my own child’s advocate, I was able to get my son’s tuition of $150,000.00 for 1-year of Residential Treatment Center with drugs, alcohol and depression paid by the school district. Most parents do not know the laws that are set in place for just these scenarios. I am here to help you navigate and work together with the school district for the best interests of your child.
As an advocate, I assist, encourage, and educate families so they better understand the ramifications of their decisions. I appeal to the school district using facts and the law and to create win-win opportunities that help children in need either educationally or emotionally. When my resolve is tested, I don’t give up and always have the best interests of your child in mind.
As a school advocate for your child, I will:
• Listen to all parties while gathering pertinent information
• Clarify issues
• Suggest options
• Locate and provide information
• Model appropriate behaviors and boundaries
• Speak on the parent/child’s behalf when they cannot speak for themselves
• Helping the family with written correspondence or phone calls
• Attend meetings
• Problem solve
• Educate families
• Assist parents in locating other supports
• Follow up
