Advocacy What’s a parent to do?
Has your child recently been classified as having special needs at school and you don’t know what to do next?
If you have a child with special needs, you may wind up battling the school district for the services your child needs. To prevail, you need information, skills, and tools. One of those tools may be an advocate.
ad-vo-cate – Verb, transitive. To speak, plead or argue in favor of. Synonym is support.
- One that argues for a cause; a supporter or defender; an advocate of civil rights.
- One that pleads in another’s behalf; an intercessor; advocates for children.
Educational Advocates: Why an advocate?
As educational advocates we evaluate children with disabilities and make recommendations about services, supports and special education programs. When we go to eligibility and IEP meetings, we are acting on your child’s behalf. As your child’s educational advocate we can negotiate for services by relying on our knowledge of the special education laws to implement tactics and strategies that will provide instruction that “fits” your child’s disability.
What Advocates Do:
Advocacy is not a mysterious process.
Here is a quick overview of advocacy.
1. Gather Information
2. Learn the Rules of the Game
3. Plan and Prepare
4. Keep Written Records
5. Ask Questions, Listen to Answers
6. Identify Problems
7. Propose Solutions
As a parent of a special needs child we know that you must negotiate with schools for special education services. As your co-advocate we will negotiate, discuss issues and make offers or proposals. We are all seeking “win-win” solutions that will satisfy the interests of you the parent, the child, and school professional.
