YOU DON'T NEED AN ATTORNEY TO ADVOCATE FOR YOUR CHILD

NJ Advocate provides advocacy services to parents who believe that the school program is not addressing their child’s disabilities or special needs.

Is your child still struggling in school? Do you feel that the school is letting your child fall through the cracks?  When you speak with teachers, guidance counselors, or the Child Study Team, do you feel overwhelmed or confused? 

Our most important job is to help you so you can work with the school to ensure that your child gets the best education guaranteed by FAPE and IDEA.

PROFESSIONAL SPECIAL EDUCATION ADVOCATES - FULLY TRAINED AND BOARD CERTIFIED

NJ ADVOCATE offers many services, but please understand, we are not attorneys, nor can we provide legal advice.  We are advocates who have studied the ins and outs of special education law. 

WHAT WE DO:

  • Review IEP documents – Including all assessments;
  • Help you craft letters – Correspondence with the Child Study Team;
  • Attend IEP meetings – You have the right to bring anyone you want to an IEP meeting;
  • Draft and submit Mediation / Due Process documents – Mediation and Due Process both require the submission of well-written documents succinctly stating why you feel the IEP is inadequate for your child;
  • Help you find other appropriate special education experts;
  • Most importantly we can help guide you – So you know that you have advocated to get the best services your child truly needs and the law allows.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO NAVIGATE THIS PROCESS ALONE

NJ ADVOCATE will listen to your concerns and help you work with your school in a partnership.  We can be with you every step of the process.  We believe that only through open communication and mutual understanding will the school be able to address your child’s educational needs.
