Children and adults who are disabled can face many challenges and barriers in our society. They can experience discrimination at school, at work and in the communities where they live.
I provide individual and family education to help them in the process of negotiating the barriers they face in their everyday lives. I educate parents about how their children are entitled to receive Special Education and related services through the Individuals with Disabilities Educational Act (IDEA) or through Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
I work with these problems:
- Accessibility in schools
- Education & Training (Access OVR)
- How to advocate in community setting (services for people over 21)
- Self direction program for adults with disabilities (Medicaid Waver Program)
