You Know Your Child is Struggling at School and Needs Help, But…

The school is just not budging.

They schedule a meeting, but they don’t want to. Dismiss your concern. Give you excuses.

You think maybe they are already doing everything they can. Don’t they want what’s best for your child, too?

But your child’s grades keep sliding. They are clearly struggling. So you lie awake at night, feeling helpless and sick with worry.

Your child deserves better. The school is legally obligated to do better.

We know the law and the game the school is playing. We know how to hold them accountable and make them cooperate. We won’t stop fighting till we get the best possible support for your child.

Better Report Cards. Happier Child. Happier You.

Happy Parents and Children!

The IEP Advocate has empowered thousands of parents and caregivers to fight for their children’s rights. Here’s what some of them have to say:

The IEP meeting I had at the school which included an Advocate was a COMPLETELY different experience from all the others preceding it. School staff was attentive and helpful, and the meeting was *very* well attended. All prior meetings felt as if they were attended begrudgingly by a very few pertinent staff members. I had felt like I was being treated like an idiot, and like my son was lazy and “just needed to do the work”. Once an IEP Advocate was there, it seemed all of a sudden that school staff had a lot of respect for me and for my son’s needs. An excellent plan was put in place for him which made the rest of that year very successful.

The IEP Advocate was the greatest blessing for my son. Speaking with Pam Lindemann and knowing that she understands what you are going through as a concerned parent really helped to prepare me for the 2nd meeting. Pam educated me on different sections of the IEP to make sure I understood certain things that were listed. The meeting was beyond EXCELLENT with Pam’s impeccable knowledge, advocating for our son. It was music to our ears and a song written in our hearts. We are truly grateful for The IEP Advocate and HIGHLY recommend them to any parent who needs assistance with getting the best plan for your child/children!!

Pam Lindemann’s team took the time to understand my child’s needs. Their advocate who worked with me has empowered me with knowledge, strength, and unwavering determination to make sure that my child has the opportunity to have her voice heard, as well as a fighting chance to get what she needs to be successful. Pam’s team is the last straw that had to be drawn to help cease any doubts that I had done everything that I could, and left no stone unturned. The peace of mind and success of my child is worth every penny!

The meeting went PERFECT! I really felt a true difference having your advocate there at the meeting. I was treated much differently, with more respect, by the school staff than in the previous meeting. In this meeting I was well heard, and the team truly considered my daughter’s problems. I could not have asked for a better outcome, and my money was well spent and worth it! Thank you so much.
