About Educational Advocates and Consultants, LLC

EACLLC provides consultation and advocacy services to parents of students with special needs who are not currently identified by their local school district but are struggling in the school setting, identified as needing accommodations through Section 504/ADA, or identified by the ARD committee as a special education student under IDEA. Students might struggle with behaviors, social skills, physical issues, or academic tasks. The services can include, but are not limited to, initial consultations, records review, attendance at meetings (Section 504, ARD, MDR), and speaking engagements for parents.

An initial consultation will allow me to learn more about the issues your child is facing.  Parents are asked to complete a Client Intake form which addresses their child’s educational background and specific areas you, the parent, would like addressed by consultation and advocacy.

A record review will provide me with access to all records relating to your child including formal and informal evaluations, report cards, progress reports, IEPs, ARD documents, etc. I can provide you with suggestions for educational programming based on this information. These suggestions aim to ensure the least restrictive environment with appropriate support and services.

Additionally, I can create presentations for groups of parents on a variety of Special Education topics including, but not limited to: Specific disabilities, understanding evaluation data, parent rights, District responsibilities, and student programming.
