A parent is a child’s best advocate.However, if you are a parent/caregiver of a child who is struggling to achieve academics and/or social success, you may need a special education consultant. As a special education consultant, I utilize my expertise and passion to support and guide families who have a child with learning differences that may require a free and appropriate education (FAPE). I work directly with families to secure the necessary services their child deserves. This does always mean special education. There are civil rights in a 504 plan to meet unique learning challenges outside of special education.
