Why should I choose to hire an advocate?
Many parents are happy with their child's programming but choose to use an advocate to support them through the special education and/or 504 process. Many parents consider the use of an advocate because they are frustrated with current programs and/or lack of appropriate services for their child. Parents of a newly diagnosed child with a disability may not understand how to navigate through the special education/504 system. An advocate can help in all these situations.
