The commitment to advocate on behalf of each patient is of utmost importance and one of the most rewarding aspects of working in this field of serving children and youth. Advocacy can include working together to develop Section 504 plans, participating in IEP team meetings, testifying in impartial hearings, joining school conferences, collaborating with therapy and educational team members, and working in conjunction with the educational attorney(s). The practice emphasizes advocating for children, teens, and young adults whether it is part of the therapy services, the neuropsychological/educational evaluation, consultations, or clinical school observation. We work very closely with families through every step of the process to assist in obtaining services and implementing interventions at every stage of development from early intervention (infant/toddler years) through high school, college, and graduate school.
