Special Education Advocacy Services
Fleming Education Group special education advocacy services empower families to become their child’s best advocate. Our services are designed to meet the needs of students and parents/guardians who care for children with disabilities. We provide both consultation and direct advocacy in the following areas:
- Fostering Effective Communication with School Staff
- Section 504
- Special Education and Student Discipline
- Student and Family Rights
- Understanding the Special Education Process
- Analyze diagnostic records including medical and neurological documentation
- Review school records and formal assessments (psychometric protocols, etc.).
- Initial and follow-up consultations after Child Study Team (CST) meetings
Direct Advocacy and Support Services
- Review school records and formal assessments in preparation for meetings
- Attend IEP / 504 Meetings
- Initiate and recommend proposals in collaboration with school district personnel (CST, IEP/504 teams)
During the process for determining appropriate consultation or advocacy services, we want to learn about the social, emotional, physical and cognitive development of your child. Upon receipt of the Family Questionnaire and Learning Specialist-Tutor Supplemental form, the engagement process begins. Conversations are confidential and personal and help us shape your family’s special education advocacy solution.
During this initial screening meeting, a Fleming Education Group advocate will meet with you to review the completed Family Questionnaire and Learning Specialist/Tutor Supplemental form, listen to your concerns and assess the scope of the special education advocacy services required.
Special Education Advocacy Pan
Based on the information gathered in the initial meeting, Fleming Education Group will develop a Special Education Advocacy Plan (SEAP) that is unique to your student and family – it will be designed to enhance your student’s probability of success. Your FEG advocate will then contact you for a conversation about the scope of the plan and how it will be activated.
Ongoing Services and Feedback
As outlined in the SEAP, we will provide services for as long as your family requests them, and/or as guided by your child’s IEP or 504 Plan. Approximately 2-3 weeks after consultation and/or advocacy services have begun, your FEG advocate will contact you to follow-up on your experience and to modify the SEAP if necessary. We will share and listen to feedback throughout the duration of the engagement to ensure your child’s needs are being fulfilled.
