Add a footnote if this applies to your business
The 504 and/or IEP process can be scary for families. There are a lot of rules and regulations and timelines that you need to be aware of in order to get the services your child needs. Both a 504 and an IEP are legal binding documents designed to assure your child gets the same educational experience as his or her peers, regardless of his/her disability. If written correctly, this document will guide teachers and therapists as to how to best meet the needs of your child. An IEP will track the interventions that are being provided at school as well as the progress toward each goal that has been set for your child. We are happy to help you through this process.
This is not a journey you have to take alone.
If your child is not receiving the services he/she needs from the school, having an advocate to help you fight for what your child needs and deserves is a way to give you peace of mind. An advocate will answer your questions, guide you through the process, fight for your rights and even attend meetings with you as needed.
