An Advocate can be vital in getting your student a “fair and appropriate education” (IDEA). An advocate can be directly involved as your representative, doing most of the work or providing you with advice necessary to advocate for yourself and your child.

Here are some responsibilities an advocate can help with:

  • Reviewing assessments, previous IEP’s and students records

  • Attending IEP meetings or 504 plans

  • Preparing for the IEP eligibility meeting or annual review

  • Prepping for the IEP or 504 plan

  • Requesting an assessment or IEP meeting

  • Reviewing the strength of your case

  • Researching any legal issues pertinent to your case

  • Support and confidence during the proceeding

  • Attending mediation (if necessary)

  • Classroom observations
