Advocate

Does anyone know of any decent advocates in the Adams County, or surrounding counties? 
 

or how to go about finding one? I’m not interested in contacting the standard places listed on the school’s procedural safeguards packet that they are required to hand out. I’m looking for an advocate who is really there for the child, not one who will just take the school’s side.

I'm in Chester County & our Arc has advocates.  Not sure if the one near you will have them.  I think PEAL is on the procedural Safeguards list.  They will help you understand the school's side and let you know if you have a case to change the IEP or if it's already FAPE.  As an advocate, I don't take anyone's side.  What I do it evaluate what's going on to see if the student needs more than the IEP has them getting.  There are parents who want the moon and an IEP only gets you appropriate interventions.
