As a mother of 8 children, 5 of whom have special needs, Amy understands the strength and stamina is takes to advocate for your child. Whether the child is self-contained in a special education classroom or in a general education classroom with accommodations and modifications to the curriculum, it is important for parents to be active participants in education process. Parents are always the number one, best advocate for their child. Amy can help you learn how to put your knowledge of your child to use when working with educational teams.
