Advocacy

Children who have difficulty with reading or school need parents who will go to bat for them. Parents know their kids best and care the most. Being an advocate for your child often means learning new terms, knowing your rights, and not giving up on making sure your child gets the help he or she needs. Find more resources in the Special Education section and on our sister website LD OnLine.
