The Journey of Parent Advocacy: Sass and strategies from square one
Show Notes

Our team at Advo-Kids believes parents are their child's best advocate and it's our job to help them advocate in the best ways! Parent advocacy is the driving force behind ALL successful strides in special education, yet so many parents feel uninformed, alone, and frustrated when facing this journey. Megan Patterson joins Denver Leigh on episode #3 to share her experience, observations, setbacks, strategies, and humor about being on square one as a parent advocate. From pre-referral to the first IEP eligibility meeting, Megan shares what she encountered and provides raw insight into a sensitive, yet critical topic ... referring your own child for special education services.

*Thank you, Megan! You rock!
