I have many years of experience advocating for children in the school system, including my own child.
As a therapist (LCSW) I can look at the whole child as help you see some “blind spots” that you may not be able to see because you are so emotionally involved.
My approach is always going into meetings with the attitude that all those involved want to help your child. I understand that parents want to maintain a positive relationship with the school and I will work to help make sure our advocacy is firm but respectful.
