Educational Advocacy & Consulting


Launching Students Towards Success

The talented team at AdvocacySD LLC provides educational advocacy and consulting in California and Arizona to support your student to launch toward success.

IEP, 504 and Discipline Support from
Advocates with Hands-On School Experience.

If you’re navigating your first IEP or your tenth, fighting for services for your student or your student is facing disciplinary action, our educational advocates and consultants will use their extensive experience as former teachers and administrators to help launch your student toward success.



Special Education

With over 20 years of hands-on school district experience, our educational advocacy experts are well-versed in all things special education. From helping you get your student assessed for an Individualized Education Plan or obtaining more services, we’ve got your covered. Whether you just need someone to review documents and reports, or you need someone to go to bat for your student, our special education advocates will get you through the challenges your student faces. Our team is highly skilled in Alternative Dispute Resolution and Manifest Determination proceedings (suspension and expulsion).


Section 504

Have you been told your student doesn’t qualify for an IEP? Has a private provider advised you to obtain a Section 504 plan for your student? Does your student just need accommodations to help them succeed? Our educational advocates will review your case to determine your student’s needs, identify the most appropriate accommodations and work with you to prioritize your student’s needs through a Section 504 accommodation plan.

Manifestation Determination, Suspension / Expulsion

Has your child been suspended or does the school keep sending your student home instead of a formal suspension? Learn more about how we can help with disciplinary problems at your student’s school.


Young Adult Support

Just because your student has transitioned into adulthood does not mean their need for support disappears. Our educational consultants assist you in finding appropriate school-based and community supports for your student to help them prepare to launch toward success.


Professional Development

Are you a program or school district wanting hands-on collaborative staff training? Are you a community group wanting to provide learning opportunities for your members? Our educational consultants provide the time and training you need to meet your organization’s goals.
