Advocacy

Our special education advocates work to provide families with information, resources, and support—including navigating the IEP process.

Advocacy is a service that provides identification of resources, information, and support for families of individuals with disabilities.

The goal of the Advocacy Director is to provide the necessary information and support so that families can better advocate for themselves. This service also includes assistance with organizing, preparing for, and understanding the IEP process and IDEA.

You do not need to be a family member or parent of an MRCA student to receive advocacy services.

The Matthew Reardon Center for Autism’s Advocacy Director’s services are FREE and available to any family in the Coastal Georgia region (and beyond).
