Education Advocacy

Exceptional Advocacy Services offers full service, expert special education and section 504 advocacy for students with disabilities in across Georgia and Eastern Alabama, including Department of Defense (DoDEA) schools. The process is often intimidating, frustrating and confusing for parents but we can help you every step of the way. The three cornerstones of advocacy are: Records review, consultation and meeting attendance. 

Records Review

We will help you obtain a copy of your child's educational records and conduct a thorough records review to understand your child's unique educational history and to aid in developing a course of action.

Records often include:

  • Evaluation reports

  • IEP's

  • Report cards

  • Goal progression data

  • Work samples

  • Disciplinary records

  • Attendance records

  • Emails 

Consultation

We meet with the family to provide support, advice and to develop a course of action.

We help can help you:

  • draft letters

  • create documentation

  • write effective goals

  • prepare for meetings

  • review documents prior to signing

My son was the first child that Marianne advocated for. When I say she has been there every step of the way, I mean she has been there, even with my children without disabilities!! You want the school district to act right this is your lady! Tribunal hearing, IEP, manifestation or whatever it may be she gets the job done. I fought Muscogee County School District for 7 years advocate after advocate and she is the only one who has gotten results. I’m so thankful for her!!!!

The services Marianne provided for my two children was exceptional. She is extremely knowledgeable in the IEP process, eligibility, accommodations and modifications that provided much needed assistance for my children that I was not able to get on my own. She was and still is available when I have questions and concerns. Marianne truly understands the struggles families face with special needs children within the school setting. Her expertise far surpassed my expectations. Thank you Marianne for your commitment to the children and families in this district and the surrounding areas.
