  2. Review all records and evaluations and create a case summary with recommendations;
  3. Recommend accommodations/modifications, supports and related services based on the individual needs of the child;
  4. Revise and/or write recommended IEP (Individual Education Goal) for your student/child.  
  5. If your student qualifies under an eligibility of Autism, my services will ensure the services outlined in the Autism Supplement or (Commissioners Rules), which are 11 additional services, are explained and understood  Understanding these additional services will maximize success for your student with Autism. 
  6. Assist and support with any and all Manifestation Determination Review Process.  
  7. Assist with Complaint Resolution up to and including Mediation and Due Process.

Provide information on Extended School Day (ESD) and Extended School Year (ESY).  Both of these services are provided to children who receive Special Education Services.  For those who need assistance, if there Local Education Agency (LEA) or school is informing them "their child may not qualify", I may be able to help.
