Special education advocacy
The Arc helps parents learn how to navigate the special education system in schools. We hold trainings to teach parents about their rights and how to be an effective advocate for their child. An Arc advocate is available via phone or in person to help parents understand a special education issue or to prepare for their child’s upcoming IEP meeting. In some situations the advocate will attend IEP meetings with parents.
We have extensive resources and handouts for parents related to special education advocacy. Printed material is available on request.
