At the COPAA Conference in Miami

There’s many wonderful professionals advocating for the advancement of children with special needs. For many of us that have personally struggled with education, it’s the passion and commitment from these professionals that have helped to advance the education for students with varying learning needs.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with COPAA or think I’m going to start singing a Barry Manilow song, it stands for the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates. For more information, please visit www.copaa.org.

Helping families navigate the Special Education process isn’t as easy as it should be; so working with a qualified professional makes a huge difference. As a former Special Education teacher and professional advocate (as well as an ADD/ADHD and Executive Functioning Coach), I cannot stress enough the importance of doing your own preparation work. Working with a qualified professional throughout the process will help you identify what’s best for your child as well as how to make the process go as smooth as possible. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. Using a good advocate though out the process is your own personal ounce of prevention.
