“A2IDEAS couldn’t have initiated their services a moment too soon, as there is such a blind spot locally for well educated, well respected education advocates. Even within the best schools there are often barriers to education for students, and for my son who is neurologically disabled, I often did not know what to ask for to best meet his educational needs.
Heather was able to objectively look through all of our education documents and help work in collaboration with our school to develop the best educational plan possible, as well as to navigate barriers as they developed. For me as a parent, it really helped give me a peace of mind that someone knew what to do in difficult, often emotionally activated situations – because we all love our children and want what is best for them. I applaud A2IDEAS for organizing on a grass roots level to allow students to get access to the best education possible, based on their specific needs and impairments. Thank you so much for all you do, and have done for us.”
