Our vision is to create opportunities for students with exceptional needs. The purpose of PASEN is to impact the lives of students with exceptional needs and help them succeed by creating educational opportunities through the use of online training, school-choice programs, and low-cost advocacy services.
PASEN’s mission as a 501(c)3 charity is to provide education, low-cost services, and support to families with exceptional students (gifted, 2E, and learning challenges) from preschool to adulthood.
I just wanted to give a HUGE shout-out to Jackie & Michelle from PASEN. Both have been with me since the start of my CSE process. Michelle did a full review of all the school’s evals & what wonderful insight she brought to those tricky numbers! Jackie is my meeting advocate & together we kicked some butt yesterday during the meeting. It wasn’t showboating, yet calm, informative & by the book. Our school is not one to understand the laws re: Special Ed, so Jackie & I, schooled them! Out of the 6 of them & the 2 of us, let me be the first to confirm….persistence & research pays off!!! I pre-studied some rules/laws, asked valid questions, raised valid points & Jackie made sure they understood…they MUST follow the laws. We had solid data to prove my 2e son does qualify for an IEP & services. So, they were forced to reconvene & continue the meeting…because the chairperson hadn’t a single clue along w/the others! I have no doubt that although the school has beaten me in a couple of battles in prior years (son denied IEP -pre=advocacy), they will NOT win the war! Thank you PASEN for you professionalism, dedication & knowledge to help parents of deserving children, get what they need!!! (BTW…this is the BEST birthday present ever Jackie!) **If you haven’t found advocacy yet, I highly recommend you hire these two amazing ladies!
