I have been a special education advocate for over 20 years. My work is primarily in Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island but I handle cases of bullying (both special education and general education) around the country.
I have two severely disabled children now in their 20’s and I am a co-chair of a Special Education Parent Advisory Council. Additionally I have about a half dozen students for whom I am their Special Education Surrogate Parent.
On my list of references as an advocate are several Special Education directors on the district level, proving something, you decide what.
Feel free to check out my advocacy site, but more important, join the newsletter and see for yourself what it is about.
