Hello world!

25 May

In the coming days I will be gathering and posting information that I would like to share about how to advocate for your own special needs child.  Collaborating with your child’s school is not always easy, but it can be done.  I am a special education teacher and a parent of a child in special education.  I have been able to successfully advocate for my own child.  It was not easy and I made many mistakes along the way.  I spent days, weeks, and months combing the internet and reading books to educate myself (and I have a degree in this too!).  Although I found many helpful and very useful sites along the way, I did not come across one site that gave advice about how to form a collaborative relationship with your child’s school.  My mission is to build a resource for parents that are struggling to help their child get the right services.  I would love to connect with other parents that are trying to advocate for their child and what they have struggled with and succeed with.
