Parents often feel overwhelmed and frustrated by the entire process of special education. There are so many people, too many acronyms, way too much paper, and too many meetings.
Parents often feel worried. They sense that their concerns about their child’s needs or lack of progress are getting lost in all those details.
That’s because no one has told them how much power they have in the process.
This course changes that.
I hope to even the playing field a bit for parents feeling outnumbered at a table full of educational experts. During 15 years of successfully advocating services for both my son and for advocacy clients, I developed a simple formula that I will teach you in this course.
This formula will provide you with a structure that you can use to develop your own laser vision that will cut through superfluous details to get to the heart of the matter.
This course will be broken down into 5 modules. Each module is packed with strategies, case histories, forms, letter templates, and exercises that get you up to speed on what you need to know to be an effective advocate for your child.
There are 5 modules timed to take a week to go through. Feel free to connect with me in my FaceBook group for questions relating to your child's situation.
Cynthia has worked in the field of advocacy for over 15 years. She advocated successfully at the state level--writing the rules for services for Texas students with autism as a member of the Autism Rule Study Group (2006) and getting autism insurance reform passed (2007) and expanded (2009). At the school level, she effectively negotiated school services for both her son and her clients. Because she saw first hand the struggle that parents have getting their children the services they need, she became passionate to help as more parents than she could as a 1:1 advocate. She loves empowering parents and helping them feel confident as they take their seat at the ARD/IEP table.
