Circle of Friends Advocacy is dedicated to providing knowledge and skills to assist parents, students, educators and other professionals with the Special Education and IDEA 2004 process. The intention of this website is to assist you in attaining basic skills that will empower you to become an equal member of the special education team.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) recognizes the importance and expertise of parents representing their child's unique needs. Parents are encouraged to participate as an equal member of the team as decisions are made concerning educational placement, support, and services their child will receive. Parents are the crucial player in the success of a student's educational journey.
As you explore this website, you will gain knowledge and empowerment to advocate for your child with unique special needs. I am available for consultation upon request.
