Individualized teaching strategies & support for the exceptional child in the home, school, & church

Advocacy and Assistance

As a parent/child advocate, I am able to serve in a variety of roles including acting as a liaison between home and school, working in conjunction with the parent and school to develop an individualized educational program, accompanying parents to a variety of school based meetings, or, if the child is already being homeschooled, assisting parents with curricular choices, goal setting, and documentation. With over 25 years experience in special education, I am familiar with IDEA language, practice, and law and am comfortable working in a collaborative way within the framework of the IEP team. 

According to individual needs, services offered as a parent/student advocate include but are not limited to:

  • Review of Evaluation Team Reports (ETRs) or other testing
  • IEP development and/or review
  • Explanation of ETR and IEP language
  • Assistance with identifying and procuring related services
  • Understanding Least Restrictive Environment (LRE)
  • Accompaniment to IEP meetings
  • Assisting homeschool parents with a service plan for their own goal setting and documentation
  • Informal assessments and curricular recommendations
  • Consultation for future planning
  • Tutoring or instructional support
  • Transition to college or career (test prep, résumé building)

I am happy to provide an initial complimentary phone consultation as part of this service. Fees for in-person or follow-up services are as follows:

  • $30/hour for work done in my home, via phone, or within a 30 mi. radius of Huron, OH
  • I will happily go beyond a 30 mi. radius of Huron with travel expenses added to my fee.

Contact me by phone or via my contact page for more information about advocacy and assistance.
