My personal experience began well, received support at IEP meeting, my assigned CPO was nice, her supervisor was on an ego trip. Instead of asking questions to me directly she took the school districts case manager's word as gold, she never took the time to discover the horrendous history the school district case manager and I had, she trusted the case manager over the family she was supposed to support and advocate for. Her ego lead to threatening me by removing my child and place my child in a state home, she called child services on me, an investigation proved unfounded allegations against me. I instantly reported the CMO supervisor to her supervisor who never returned my calls. These workers need training beyond what they receive. They need to understand school districts do things to retaliate against families that demand due services pertaining to their child's education. When you cost the school money, the case manager doesn't get their $30,000 bonus check.. If an organization geared to assisting and providing support cannot do so properly and have authorities come after innocent families, those people are not suited nor trained for their jobs and hopefully the person that did that to me is no longer working with CMO and receiving mental therapy before she does this to more families. Kill your egos, humble yourselves, advocate for families like you are supposed to do. Families beware, non-profits are not sueable for their damages to your minor children or family.
We are sorry to hear of your unsatisfactory experience with the school system and CMO. We here at FSO strive for system change with the hopes of achieving a unified system of care among all providers to ensure a smooth process for the families we serve.
