Our practice has an established relationship with a local educational services coordinator that he has referred to for many years. She has helped many parents smoothly navigate the educational process for their student.
Getting the educational support, accommodations and services that your child needs is, at times, a complicated task. An educational services coordinator listens to your concerns, desires, and goals, and then helps create a plan that works best for you and your child. Her aim is to keep the process as smooth and simple as possible, by making sure that you’re equipped with the right information, and by checking that each step is followed correctly.
In order to initiate the 504 plan or IEP process, you will need to write a letter to the school. An educational coordinator will help you write the letter, and you will leave her office with the completed copies needed for the professionals in your student’s school district.
Private schools do not have a structured process called the 504 or IEP. Your school will need a list of your requests for specific accommodations. We have a complete list of accommodations you can request, and together we will discuss which would best fit your child depending on their diagnosis and learning style. We will provide copies of this list to hand out at your student’s school meeting.
If you have more questions about how your student can be helped, please call our office and we will give you the contact information for the educational services coordinator. She will gladly have a 5 -10 minute, no-charge phone call to determine if she can assist you.
