Consultations & Advocacy
If you don’t know where to start, it’s impossible to know where you’re going. The world of special education can be confusing and stressful for children, parents, and educators alike if they aren’t equipped with the proper resources. St. Louis LDA’s individual consultations give you access to the information and tools you need to help your child succeed, and our advocacy services help you navigate unfamiliar situations. If your child has a learning disability (such as dyslexia and other language impairments) and/or other challenges to learning (such as ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder), reach out today and see how we can help create their optimal learning environment.
What Is An IEP?
If your child has a learning disability, an Individualized Education Program (IEP) is crucial to their future success. It can be immensely frustrating for a child, parent, and teacher to feel helpless when trying to provide a fitting learning environment. An IEP helps remove the frustration that stems from one-size-fits-all solutions and will eliminate issues that doesn’t contribute to your child’s success. An IEP should be followed by the student, teacher(s) and other educators involved, and its specific guidelines will aid in tracking the student’s progress.
