Consulting & Advocacy - IEP and 504 Plans

Apple Patch offers school-based IEP (Individualized Education Plan) and 504 Plan consultation & advocacy to parents & caregivers.   Every minute a child in need spends without appropriate services, intervention & remediation opportunities are lost, & recovery becomes more difficult.

 

We can help you gain control of your child's  academic development by cutting through bureaucracy, explaining  confusing terminologies, & educating on expectations, measurements, & accountability.

What we can do:

  • Meet with you & your child to discuss his/her evaluation results prior to the school meeting

  • Discuss the IEP or the 504 process, differentiate between the two plans, & set expectations from parties involved

  • Review paperwork & discuss potential gaps between actual services received versus what is documented

  • Provide comprehensive parental input assistance throughout the process

  • Attend staff meetings with you for support & providing a second voice for your child

  • Provide recommendations for adjusting documentation as needed

  • Help ensure that services & needed accommodations are consistently & effectively provided according to your child's specific needs
