As a School Social Worker, I have participated in many planning and placement meetings on behalf of students with educational disabilities. On several ocassions I have colllaborated with family advocates from the Association For Children's Mental Health during these meetings. The professionalism and advocacy demonstrated by the staff of this association did make a significant difference in the eventual outcome of services msde available to students. Providing a service of this nature is invaluable to parents who otherwise may be intimidated by the school bureaucracy and give in to offers of service less than what would be needed to meet the student needs.
