Student Advocacy, Inc. is probably the only organization of its kind within our 9 county region. So many families in the NY State area find themselves feeling marginalized and even victimized when their child needs the protection of educational advocacy. Not only do they serve the families with great vigor, but Student Advocacy offers families whose children may face significant challenges empathy, support, comfort, and respect that often is missing from their interaction with the general public and of course, the school systems. Student Advocacy, Inc. does not just protect a child's educational rights. Student Advocacy, Inc. makes certain the child and their family feels engaged in and supported in our society. Student Advocacy, Inc. is highly valued by the region, and is an ideal model for replication in other counties/regions.
