How Seetha’s Advocacy Works

Every child deserves to feel understood and feel safe in school. Otherwise, learning can’t take place. Seetha’s advocacy begins with understanding your child, and ends with getting your child’s educational needs met by the school. She learns about the situation your child is in right now, your experience with the school, your concerns, and what you would like to see changed. Your child’s school records contain a wealth of information, so Seetha will review those to fill out the picture about your child’s learning profile and school history leading up to the present. Then she discusses options with you and a plan for moving forward. Throughout the process, Seetha works closely with parents whenever a decision needs o be made, a document needs to be signed, or an email exercising parental rights, or facilitating parental participation, needs to be sent. She strives to ensure you’re well informed, empowered, and equipped to advocate for your child while maintaining good relations with the school team. SEE FAQs
