A child’s education should be a positive, productive and wondrous journey. A time when each child has the opportunity to reach his/her full academic and developmental potential, with home and school working together. This is how it should be, yet we know that there are situations when home and school are not on the same page.
We understand that you want the best for your child. We know the frustration, helplessness and hurt that you feel when your child’s school isn’t delivering an appropriate education; and when you try to communicate with the school, you are shut out.
That is when you should call us.
The initial consultation involves speaking with an attorney and an educational advocate; and by meeting with both professionals simultaneously, you receive a view from both a legal and educational lens. We blend our collective years of legal and educational experience to provide you with a comprehensive and realistic overview of your situation. That makes a big difference, because our educational advocate worked in the public schools for many years and understands how the schools think.
Call us if you are experiencing difficulties with your child’s school and/or educational program.
