Services and Fees
Like any other business which provides services, we too must feed our families. However, our goal remains providing services for children without causing their family additional stress with a financial burden. In that regard, we are writing grants and seeking sponsorships to enable us to assist your children and pass this financial return onto you. Until that time, we must charge for services.
Our primary function is to assist children with disabilities who are having school-related problems. However, that in itself encompasses a wide variety of issues. Below you will find a selective few of the services we render:
We provide unlimited time to any parent/guardian, at no cost, to sit down and discuss the problems they are encountering with their child at school. We give advice on how to resolve these issues and what the rights of the child are. At no cost.
We offer "hands-on" resolution to issues by attending ARC and 504 Committee meetings with the family.
We assist in medical referrals to appropriate physicians, psychologists, and therapist who are familiar with the unique needs of children. At no cost.
We assist children with whom disciplinary action has taken place including school suspensions, expulsions, administrative hearings, and juvenile justice appearances before a Court Designated Worker.
We provide resource information to families in need of information regarding their child's rights. At no cost.
We publish an on-line newsletter providing up to date information on legal, medical and of interest articles regarding children with disabilities. At no cost.
We assist in helping kids enter a variety of programs to help them over the summer and give them opportunities for community service. At no cost.
We interact within the community with professionals whose expertise will help families and children, no matter what the need.
We give presentations state-wide to parent and professional organizations.

With the variety of services, it would be difficult to place an exact amount per case. Therefore, as each circumstance is different, so is our rate for the service. However, our hourly rates are substantially less than most professional firms and we get results! The investment you make is for your child.
