The Dyslexia Advocacy Advantage
This online educational program is for parents who have the time and interest to learn how to become a more effective parent advocate. These parents learn at their own pace and apply what they learn to create an educational plan to fit their child's needs.
Don't Go It Alone
This advocacy package is for parents who don’t have the time or inclination to advocate for their child alone. They would like an advocate to create the plan their child needs and advocate to have it put it in place.
Let's Stay On Track
This advocacy package is for clients who were served with a Don’t Go It Alone package in the last year. These parents are looking for help to keep the plan already put in place on track.
