For a student with learning differences, learning concerns take many forms. We help families understand and address previously identified learning challenges, as well as pinpoint overlooked factors that may be affecting a child’s ability to learn.

Education Advocacy | SEN Advocates

To empower families and give a voice to students, we can assist with the following:

  • Advising parents about services, programs, and accommodations that meet their children’s individual needs
  • Helping parents interpret reports and evaluations, as well as explaining their implications
  • Drafting requests, responses, and complaints to schools
  • Assisting parents with submitting written requests
  • Preparing parents for IEP and 504 meetings (meetings that outline the services and accommodations students will receive and how schools will remove barriers to learning, such as providing a calculator to students with dyscalculia), which may include suggesting support materials or prioritizing goals and objectives
  • Checking special education documents for accuracy and completion both before and after IEP and 504 meetings
  • Accompanying parents to IEP and 504 meetings to offer advice and assistance
  • Advising parents about the strength of their cases before review and offering referrals to special education attorneys when appropriate
