There is nothing more debilitating for a Mother than to have her child having serious problems in school. Whether the problems stem from behavioral issues, learning disabilities and/or health concerns, Student Advocacy works with the parent and the school to find a workable solution to get the student on a learning tract. The parent learns to advocate for her child with the teachers and school administrators as well as to effectively challenge her child. Student Advocacy has an excellent staff that works with the school and parent until a path to a successful school experience is developed. While not every child becomes an award winner for his or her progress, each child has a team for the student to rely on for help. What a relief this provides the whole family: the Mother especially and Father are freed from the worry and fear of being alone in dealing with a failing and/or ill child. School becomes part of the solution instead of the other half of the problem.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Attending award ceremonies honoring children who have benefited greatly from the intervention of Student Advocacy in their school life.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
