I will never, ever, go into an IEP meeting without my advocate again. Never. The difference was amazing. They paid attention to me and listened to what I said. Normally my meetings take 20 minutes and they rush me in and rush me out. Not this time. At the end of two hours, they said to me, ‘Is there anything else we haven’t covered that we can help you with?’ For the first time, I felt like I was heard. For the first time, I understand my son’s IEP. For the first time, I have hope. Thank you for making all of it happen.
