Educational Advocacy

The Educational Advocacy Program assists families in guiding and supporting them through the special education process as a bridge between educational staff and families. The Arc educates on the proper processes to avoid breakdowns in communication to ensure that the child’s needs are met by means of meetings, referrals, recommendations, resources, and materials. Our Advocates listen to concerns from families and schools, create agendas for meetings, facilitate discussion between school staff and families, promote positive problem solving, bring best practices to the table, and aim to assist families and schools in keeping open communication that puts the student’s need at the center of every conversation.
