When I began the journey of fighting for the educational rights of my child, I had no idea where to begin or who to call for advice. I received Amyra’s information from a lawyer, along with a great recommendation. Amyra went over my son’s IEP, history and school records. She told me what paperwork I needed and what things I needed to complete on my end. She took the time to listen to what I felt were my son’s needs, and asked important questions that I felt the school had never asked me. I worked with Amyra over the course of several months – and during that time she was always available when I called, texted or emailed. She made sure I understood every step of the advocacy and educational system and was very caring for my son and myself. I couldn’t have been referred to a better person or educational advocate than Amyra. Her knowledge and ability to stand up to the school system helped my child get the proper educational tools and placement to help him succeed. Thank you for everything
My hats go off to you for working with this situation. During the observation, you were most patient and positive with this parent. Kudos for handling this situation with the utmost professionalism and sensitivity.
