Attending a meeting with the Committee on Special Education can be scary for any parent when their child is suspected of having a disability that can make learning more difficult. When parents attend a meeting with the Committee on Special Education, school staff are armed with information about your child that is confusing and hard to understand. It is as if they are speaking a different language. And, all you want is to ensure that your child has the best education possible. So, you cry at the meeting hoping that the Committee on Special Education will give you everything you think your child deserves. Instead, they pass you a box of tissues.

MLM Advocacy understands that this is a journey that often begins with stressful and anxiety filled parameters. With expertise, compassion and knowledge of Educational Law, I will help students and their families navigate through the entire process. As a bilingual social worker, I believe in collaboration with parents, educators, social service agencies and other outside providers to help develop a framework towards a master plan that will help your child feel successful at school. When parents understand how to best help their child in school, it not only empowers the family but also enables the student to achieve success in their own way.
