As parents, we work hard to understand our children’s needs and advocate for them to receive the best services. Sometimes, unfortunately, things don’t turn out as we envision. Even with the best of intentions, there are times when the accommodations are not delivered as we expect, or our children are not comfortable receiving the services offered. Let’s talk about how to help kids receive support in ways that address both their needs and their concerns, and how to help them be involved in the process so they can learn to advocate for themselves now, and in the future.
