Advocacy 
Navigating certain educational decisions can be confusing and stressful for parents.  Beacon offers information and support because it helps to know that you have a person with your child's best interest at heart.  We can direct you to resources, research and contact organizations on your behalf, and attend parent teacher conferences and 504/IEP/ESOL meetings with you.  
I had tried to arrange a 504 meeting with the school for weeks, and couldn't get on the calendar.  Beacon helped me write an email, and I was on the calendar within minutes.

Beacon helped me write a letter explaining our situation.  The letter helped us get the meeting we needed, and then they attended the meeting with me.  I always get overwhelmed in those meetings because there are so many people.  It's hard to think of questions and process what everyone is saying.  I am so glad Beacon was with me.  It made it less stressful, and they are going with me to my next meeting!

Consultation 
Beacon offers parents an objective view of their child's current situation.  After performing observations or shadowing, we can provide recommendations and strategies to be applied at school and/or home, as well as, provide information and insight to help formulate an individualized learning plan.
Beacon went to school and shadowed our daughter for us because she was having trouble in Science. She came back and gave us some strategies that she could apply in the classroom to make it easier when she got home.  It was great to get that kind of insight into what is going on during the day.
