Access to PASEN blog
The PASEN blog offers information about many topics of interest to the exceptional student community. The blog is the place you will go if you ever need any information
Our knowledgeable advocates can find the information you are needing that is speific to your needs and your state, but that research takes time. You will be charged $35/hour to do research on your case and give you the information you will need to best help you in whatever way we can.
Our advocates will explain in detail how the IEP/504 process works and offer advice about what to say in your child’s IEP meeting. Our information is based on the law and guidance from the government and district entities. We will advise you on what to say and when to say it so you can advocate for your child successfully.
We can write emails to the school/district on your behalf or we can format an email template that you can use for your specific case that will help you in the IEP/504 process.
If you provide us with any school or educational testing results, we will review these records and offer our opinion about what to do in your situation. Our advocates can interpret assessment and psychometric testing results to give you a better overall picture of what your child needs in an educational setting.
If you need educational advice, you can make an appointment to speak directly with one of our advocates. Many questions can be answered with a simple phone call and a description of your situation. Our advocates can evaluate your situation and give you the best advice moving forward.

Assist with Due Process
We cannot represent you in a court as none of our advocates practice law, but we can guide you and help lead you in what to say if you face a judge in a due process case. Due process cases are very complex and have specific procedures and policies that must be followed if you have a chance to win. We will help guide you through those procedures and help you to feel confident to advocate for your own child.
