My Expert Service

Having a special needs child can be so trying and confusing. Understanding the "system" and making certain that the child's needs are all being met often cannot be done alone. I have worked for many years with parents of special needs children and have run a special education program working closely with state government and many different school districts. In addition, I have worked with special education teachers in delivery of services and developed and administered programs for special needs children.tumblr page counter
