To become a client of Parents Advocating Together, email our Intake Coordinator at
. Please include your
full name, child's name, address, phone number, name of school, grade, and disability.
We can not take any action on your case until you have retained our services, and provide all
of your documents, including copies (not originals) of your child's educational records, assessments
and IEPs in a 3" binder with tabs. To protect the integrity of our advocates, we can not offer specific
recommendations or advice before a thorough record review. Once an advocate reviews all your educational
files, you will be contacted for a phone consultation. After your phone consultation, if you are
interested in our advocate attending your child's IEP, ask the school district for more than one
time/date to be offered. Contact the advocate who provided your phone consultation directly to verify
the IEP date works for their schedule. You will also need to inform the school district, in writing at
least 24 hours in advance, that you intend to audio record the IEP meeting. You can email the program
specialist, or district representative, to provide notice of your intent to audio record, or you can
handwrite your intend to audio record on their IEP Notice of Meeting form. You will need to purchase
an audio voice recorder. Our advocates may also audio record the IEP meeting, however due to liability
concerns, the advocate is not responsible to retain or preserve the audio recording.
