Advocating for your child can be a difficult ask for any parent. Knowing what to reasonably expect from a school, knowing how to ask and getting results can be difficult for parents who feel uncomfortable for any number of reasons. This talk will navigate through the school factors that can affect the outcome of your discussions and how best to deal with the fears and phobias at both ends of the conversation.
