What’s a parent to do?

Has your child recently been classified as having special needs at school and you don’t know what to do next?


                                                                                         Educational Advocates: Why an advocate?

As educational advocates we evaluate children with disabilities and make recommendations about services, supports and special education programs. When we go to eligibility and IEP meetings, we are acting on your child’s behalf. As your child’s educational advocate we can negotiate for services by relying on our knowledge of the special education laws to implement tactics and strategies that will provide instruction that “fits” your child’s disability.

What Advocates Do:

Advocacy is not a mysterious process.

Here is a quick overview of advocacy.

1. Gather Information

2. Learn the Rules of the Game

3. Plan and Prepare

4. Keep Written Records

5. Ask Questions, Listen to Answers

6. Identify Problems

7. Propose Solutions


As a parent of a special needs child we know that youmust negotiate with schools for special education            services. As your co-advocate we will negotiate,         discuss issues and make offers or proposals. We are all seeking “win-win” solutions that will satisfy the           interests of you the parent, the child, and school          professional




Special Needs NJ, LLP believes that all children have the potential to succeed in school. Our dedicated tutors are committed to helping improve your child's academic abilities - no matter the subject or skill level. We work to pinpoint the exact skills your child needs to learn.

All instruction is differentiated to the clients learning ability, mode of learning, with implementation of adaptive technology, auditory, visual or tactile aides.

Special Needs NJ, LLP works with each client individually, so your student receives the specific help he or she needs. To ensure success across communities, our tutors will work hand in hand with your school teachers to provide support and guidance
