Exceptional Advocacy Services

Helping your child reach their highest possible potential

Do I need an educational advocate? 

  • Is the IEP or 504 process overwhelming? ​

  • Despite your best effort to understand everything about the process, do you often feel a step behind and like you are missing important information?​

  • Do you find the special education language, terminology, and acronyms unclear and confusing?  

  • Do you feel frustrated when you read through school documents and wonder if it meets your child’s unique educational, academic, social, and emotional needs?​

  • Has the school said or done something that you don't believe is the best for your child?

  • Although you would like to have a collaborative relationship with the school, do you often feel like an outsider at the IEP team meetings? Are you outnumbered and uncomfortable when you would like to speak up?

  • Do you feel that your K - 12 student isn't getting their educational needs met?

What Parents Are Saying

"I don't think there are words to describe how much Marianne's help has meant to me. If you are fighting for your child, you can't do it alone. The schools know that a parent doesn't know the rules and laws the way an advocate does and they will take advantage of it. If you have a child that needs help like me, the best investment you can make in their future is an advocate like Marianne who brings her passion to the table."
