"Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family." - Kofi Annan
"What Clients Say..." "As a parent of a three year-old who qualifies for special services in pre-school, I had no idea the amount of sheer information I would have to sift through, absorb, and evaluate in order to construct an appropriate IEP for my son.I felt entirely overwhelmed by the likelihood of making a mistake...Simply put, Amy took a process that seemed unmanageable and made it just the opposite...Amy remained by my family’s side from evaluation all the way to signing the finalized IEP (an IEP my husband and I were able to rebuild as a result of her guidance). Best of all, Amy took the time to get to know my son’s personal situation and went through every goal and benchmark with a fine-toothed comb. Nothing escaped her attention, and I was constantly bowled over by the depth of her knowledge and experience." - Colette, LNL client
"What Clients Say..." "...While we were going through the challenging and emotional chapter of wondering what was wrong with our son, Amy was a steady rock and brought us back down to reality...Amy empowered us to feel confident. Where the first half of the school year was filled with anxiety, notes home and a feeling of parenting failure, this second half has been replaced with joy, pride in our son and a love of learning back in his actions and words. We are grateful for Amy's help and reassurance on our parenting instinct. We would (and have!) recommended her whole-heartedly to any parent..." - Carrie, LNL client
What's an IEP?
What's a 504 Plan?
What is the difference between an accommodation and modification?
How much power does a parent have to influence the goals?
These are only a few of the questions that need answers when you have a school-aged child with special needs. These are also a few of the questions that bring parents an incredible sense of anxiety, insecurity, and helplessness.
All parents want the best for their children. They are the true experts on aptitude and achievement. However, when put into a conference room with a handful of professionals using specialized terms and describing a child you don't know, it becomes easy to forget you are the most powerful, influential people in your child's life. Let us help restore your place at the head of that table. We use our decades of experience in the classroom to help families navigate the business of education. We will help you understand the process of getting an IEP and join you when it is written to empower you as the leader of your child’s educational team.
