Education Advocates

Clinical services will be offered by ISAAC through Education Advocates.  These will be counselors who will confer with parents whose children are having difficulty in school.  The Advocates will be available on a sliding fee scale basis.  Clients will be charged based upon their ability to pay.  They would be available to attend parent-teacher conferences, special education referral meetings, grade retention meetings, disciplinary hearings, conduct diagnostic classroom observations and work with parents in any manner in which they need consultation related to success in school.   Parents of all income levels are often frustrated in trying to obtain the advice they need when their children have a problem at school.  This service would be offered to give parents a place to go to develop strategies to offer their children the support they need when a decision has to be made.
