Parent Endorsements

To a parent whose children don’t fit neatly into the educational system, Barbara is a godsend!  She has provided empowering and compassionate support for our family over many years.  Her legal background, experience working with public schools and her practical, holistic parenting advice have helped me advocate for my children’s education and become a better parent.  When we first met, I felt frustrated and alone. Barbara helped me understand my son’s rights and to navigate the IEP process.  This was not something that I could figure out alone. I recommend her highly!

I have been fortunate to know Barbara since our children were in elementary school and between assistance with our son’s GIEP, 504 and now with his college essay, I truly don’t know what we would have done without Barbara‘s expertise and assistance. Her sincere interest in our son’s success both in school and in life are qualities that few hold and are what make Barbara such a great instructor and person. We would be lost throughout this process and are so fortunate to have been able to take advantage of her skills and what she has to offer.
