Educational laws are in place to help protect our children and to ensure that they receive a “fair and appropriate public education”. What does this mean?  And how can I make sure that my child receives the help he or she needs to be academically successful? How do I navigate the process of developing an Individual Academic/Educational Plan (IAP/IEP)?

At best, the “legalese” is confusing. And while these laws exist to protect, actually receiving the full advantage of legislation requires incredible resources, both monetarily and with professional staffing. Many school systems are under intense pressure to minimize the outlay of resources.

We can help guide you through the eligibility and IEP/IAP development process to ensure the best possible outcome for your child’s academic success.
