The Families We Serve
Meet Melanie and John.
They are parents of child who was being left behind by the public school system.
Listen to their story and know that progress like this is possible for your child too!
Lorraine helped my family in a time when we did not have much hope.
She was able to work with us and get our son everything he needed at school, which the school system had not been giving him. We finally feel that there is hope for him.
I didn't even know what help I was looking for, I just knew that something wasn't right.
Lorraine immediately put me at ease...Her skills as an advocate are beyond measure and she does it all with a calm, warm, "can do" attitude. I can't say enough about Lorraine and consider hiring her one of the smartest things I've ever done.
She saved my daughter’s education.
My daughter was many years behind in reading and Lorraine went the extra mile to ensure the school listened and took appropriate action to help my daughter. Hiring Lorraine to be my educational advocate was the best thing I could have done to help my daughter succeed in school and in life.
I tell them they can't afford NOT to have Lorraine!
I tell other parents that you are an invaluable asset in understanding the process, the parent's/child's rights and options, the resources available, historical context, and interpretation of the education lingo. After having gone through the process with and without you, I tell them they can't afford NOT to have Lorraine!
On a scale of one to 10, I would give you an 11.
I would absolutely recommend you to other parents!
You are making such a difference in the lives of students.
You were awesome yesterday (at my son’s IEP meeting)! I feel so blessed and relieved we have you…. you are making such a difference in the lives of students and I would be lost without you.
Working with Lorraine and her team made everything easier.
My husband and I knew we were in expert hands and could rely on the advice we were given to ensure the best outcome for our daughter.
It's hard to do justice to the difference it made by bringing Lorraine into the IEP process.
Lorraine was able to ensure all of the school's interventions aligned with what my son was working on with our tutor. This has made all the difference. Once Lorraine joined the process, they finally listened to me (the parent), the school district's Dyslexia experts, and the research.
Thank you for the help and advocacy you gave me and my son!
There’s so much to navigate and without you, I would never have known the right questions to ask or more importantly how far I could push to get the services my son needed. I’m still amazed to this day that they would have denied him what we asked for! Thank you!!
Lorraine and Melissa have been wonderful to work with!
They are very organized and have wonderful communication. We are thankful for everything that they have done for us.
Cut your stress level and equip you with confidence and knowledge...
Seeking Lorraine’s services will drastically cut your stress level and equip you with insights, confidence and the knowledge you will need as a parent moving forward within your child's school district's special education system.
Her passion for special education shines clearly.
She has the intelligence, people skills, and work ethic [that make her] a successful advocate.
Save your family so much heartache and anxiety and gain your child precious time.
I can't recommend her enough to anyone who suspects a learning disability in their child. It is worth every penny.
I felt discouraged and stuck until Lorraine stepped in the picture.
She helped to break down walls and bring true hope to my daughter’s educational situation. Before Lorraine, I hit a brick wall and the school would not listen to me or my daughter’s needs.
She is the answer to my prayers.
I’m so grateful I found Lorraine Hightower to help my daughter receive appropriate accommodations and evidence based instruction. I feel it was divine intervention that I found Lorraine.
She's an amazing combination of kindness, conviction, consistency, intelligence, knowledge, and grit.
She knows dyslexia. She knows the law. She knows the local school systems. She knows how to transform the IEP process for traumatized parents. She changes the life trajectory for the children she advocates for.
