An educational advocate is a professional who helps parents navigate the special education and 504 Plan process. They act as a voice for parents and students within the educational setting.  

Our team reviews evaluations, IEPs and school records then provides parents advice on how to proceed and recommendations specific to their child’s unique needs. We will be there to offer our support and expertise every step of the way!

Helping educators understand dyslexia.

We train educators with interactive presentations giving them a heightened level of understanding of dyslexia and ultimately empowering dyslexic students. 

We have programs for all grade levels, a Phonological Awareness Workshop and Dyslexia for an hour Simulation.
