Advocacy Services

Holly offers professional services to work with the family, student, school and all other relevant professionals to assure that each student receives the appropriate education necessary to optimize his/her opportunity to achieve to the highest level of his/her potential.

As an advocate, Holly guides the student and family in obtaining the best possible modifications, or accommodations that will support the student in participating in all educational programs and activities.  In addition, she works with families and schools in assuring that the appropriate assessments are used to determine a student’s current level of educational performance, and that an education plan and goals are solidly based on the needs of the student.

Holly is available to work with teachers and administrators in the implementation of each student’s IEP and monitor periodically to assure that the accommodations and/or modifications are continuing to be effective and progress continues to be made on each goal.  If changes need to be made, Holly will meet with the staff and discuss ways to help the student make progress.

Dyslexia Screening

  • Conduct an in-depth, accurate screening process (using 8 different screening tools) to find out if a child “fits the dyslexia profile,” determine the child’s severity level, and written report that private schools will accept
  • Most public schools will also accept this type of report if it is done by a specialist, neuropsychologist, psychologist, or trained staff member
