Why we do it?
As Parents and Advocates we like to say that Parents only want an appropriate education for their children.
Truth of the matter is we all start by believing in the system and when we realize the system is not willing to go the extra mile to help out our child and as a consequence our children start to regress, we the parents start questioning said system and as a result we get labeled as confrontational.
Most parents who reach out to advocates and attorneys for help face serious difficulty experiencing lack of support from school administrators and teachers.
In spite of it all our children are expected to behave and perform like a typical child and parents receive calls every week and attended several meetings with the district behaviorist principle, case managers and teachers in order to avoid suspension. Often parents keep telling them to consider behaviors as manifestation of their Childs disability and they don’t do anything to support refocus or redirect the child.
When a child is neglected he becomes frustrated or ignored. His grades are good in periods where the teachers support him the most and low where he has no support.
Most parents are exhausted from the road blocks they face, hiring an advocate or attorney becomes inevitable, no one wants to face legal battles we do it because the system fails us over and over.
So here you are looking for answers.
