No man should bring children into the world who is unwilling to persevere to the end in their nature and education. -- Plato

Getting Started

Advocacy Services
  1. ​After the first consultation, if we both feel that it makes sense to take the next step, we’ll schedule a meeting to plan an educational strategy that will help your child. Securing the appropriate educational services and accommodations takes several steps and planning. Going into an IEP meeting prepared gives you a better opportunity to get what your child needs and makes the most of your time, effort, and money. To speed things along, please complete our confidential Client Intake form and send it back via email.
  2. We’ll begin reviewing the original evaluation and diagnosis, current IEP, and any other reports that will provide more background information about your child before our second consulting meeting by phone or in person after we get a signed contract and a prepayment that covers two hours for Documentation and Background Review and second Client meeting.
  3. In our second consultation, the most important question we’ll ask is what you envision for your child’s future? What do you want for him/her? If you wrote a mission statement, what would it say? What are your overall goals for your child? Getting a solid education is like stacking up building blocks. You need the correct blocks and then you need to put them in the right order. From there, we figure out how to help your child achieve those goals. What is currently lacking in order for your son or daughter to succeed in school?  As parents, you love your child and know him/her better than anyone. You remain after everyone else is gone.
  4. Research. Then Kids First Advocacy looks at the law. What does your son or daughter need in order to receive a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the least-restrictive environment (LEA)?  What accommodations and related services does the school district need to provide for your son or daughter to succeed in the school environment, including behavioral intervention supports?
  5. After we’ve done our homework and have some answers, Kids First Advocacy creates a plan.
  6. Then we go to your IEP meeting.  
Parent Consultations
  1. Children don’t come with a manual that tells you what to do at every transition, particularly for children with special needs. Sometimes you need help and you may not even know where to begin. That’s O.K. We offer consultations to let you voice your concerns and then we help you figure out what steps you might want to take. It’s as simple as that. We want to be there for you!
  2. We’ll meet and then begin assessing your needs and challenges and create strategies that will have positive outcomes for your child at home, in school, and in your community. No topics are off limits. A 20% discount is offered for a package of 4 sessions.
