I am a former Support Coordinator, who has now become a disability advocate. I offer support for young people with disabilities and their families. I am also a licensed psychotherapist.
An advocate is a person who is fighting for someone else. They are not just speaking on behalf of someone, they are fighting to make sure the person they are advocating for has their voice heard and their needs met. An advocate is someone who supports someone in a difficult situation. They do this by listening to them and helping them get what they need from the resources around them. They can also be anyone who works with people with autism or other disabilities, such as parents or teachers.
When it comes to being an ally to those with autism, there's no set way you need to be involved in order for your advocacy work to count as "advocacy." You can choose how much time you want to devote yourself toward each cause that matters most—whether it's working with another autistic individual on their social skills at school or joining protests against vaccine use—and still be considered an effective advocate if you're doing so because it feels right for YOU!
I have worked with children with special needs for many years, and I am well-versed in state regulations. I can help families obtain an appropriate education for their children.
I also have an understanding of the federal laws that affect special education.
I have worked with children of all ages, and I can help your child get the education he or she needs to succeed. I have experience working with children on the autism spectrum, as well as those who are developmentally delayed. I’m familiar with the federal laws that govern special education, which means I know how to get your child the services that they need.

As an advocate, you may be called upon to help parents get the right services for their children with special needs when the school doesn't think they are entitled to them. This can be a challenging role because you need to understand both sides of this equation:
I have worked with school districts Wayne, Oakland and Macomb. I have also worked with many families who had children with special needs. I helped parents get the right services for their children with special needs, when the school didn't think they were entitled to them.
I believe that in order to be an effective advocate, you need to understand how schools work and what is required by state law. With my advocacy background, I am well-versed in state regulations and can help families obtain an appropriate education for their children.
As a consultant for IEP teams, I am often asked about the process of finding appropriate educational services for children with disabilities. Often parents are desperate for answers about where their child will go after graduation from high school or college if he/she does not have enough credits to complete a certain program of study due to missing classes because of illness or other reasons not related directly back into class activities through documentation provided by medical providers.
Your role as the parent advocate on an IEP team is to ensure that your child receives the best education possible. The IEP team creates an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for each child with special needs, which includes strategies for teaching, helping the student progress and keeping them safe. As a parent advocate, you can help ensure that your child's IEP meets his or her needs by participating in educational meetings.
The purpose of these meetings is to create an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for each child with special needs that addresses such things as:
what services they need in the classroom; if they should be mainstreamed or placed in a self-contained classroom; what accommodations and modifications should be made to address any learning needs.
I can help you get the services your child and young adults needs. I’ve been an advocate for people with disabilities for years, so I have extensive knowledge of state regulations, laws, and policies. With this background, I am well-versed in navigating the school system—including finding suitable schools and therapists or doctors.
I also understand your rights as a parent of a child with autism or other disabilities. If necessary, I will advocate on behalf of your child in order to ensure that he receives adequate educational services at school. This may include helping you file complaints about inappropriate practices by teachers or administrators if necessary.
If you need help with special education issues, please contact me today.
I will work closely with you to ensure that your child receives the services he needs. If necessary, I can also file complaints on your behalf regarding inappropriate practices by teachers or administrators at school.
