Hi, I'm Tara.
I'm not just an advocate.
I'm a special needs mom.
I get it.
As the mother of three Autistic children, I have extensive experience in the special needs world. I've been through the diagnosis process, on to the school evaluations, the IEP meetings, the goals, obtaining the ESA (Empowerment Scholarship), accessing DDD services Arizona), accessing ALTCS (Arizona) and fighting the fights. Unfortunately, in our case, the road wasn't easy. We were fighting a battle we had no clue how to win. We were fortunate enough to hire an Attorney who specializes in Special Needs Law. The retainer was exorbitant, BUT we had no choice at the time. NOW, I want to give back because many families don't have access to an attorney. I've been through it all, and I want to show you precisely what to do at a fraction of the cost.
I provide services that will make your life a LOT easier! IEP Evaluation, in-person advocating at school meetings, searching for private schools that will benefit your child (if you feel the public school isn't the most beneficial placement for your child), and pointing you in a direction to obtain a formal medical diagnosis.
Although all my children are Autistic, I customize plans for children with all unique abilities. I have a Master's Degree in Public Administration-Public Policy, and I am easily able to dissect the laws, regulations, and rights your child has in the State of Arizona. I am soul invested in the process because I know the challenges special needs families face, the frustrations, and the tears. I can make your life easier and get your child the services and education they are entitled to.
You're about to be very confident at those school meetings!
And I will be standing with you, fighting for your child's right to succeed;
academically, socially and emotionally.
SUPPORT & TRAINING
AFFORDABLE FOR ALL
Some parents may need more help than others, which is why my plans and strategies are customized to your child's unique abilities and situation. I look forward to hearing your story and putting together a tailored plan to help you where you need it most!
Let's get your child the education they deserve.
