Why Use a Parent Advocate?

For a parent, navigating the process of early intervention is an incredibly challenging experience, both logistically and emotionally. It can be both painful and utterly overwhelming to come to accept that your child may have real developmental delays and/or a diagnosis of something like Autism Spectrum Disorder or ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Having someone who has been through this experience and understands the ins and outs and can both provide useful advice and empathy can make this process go much more smoothly, and help your child get the services he or she needs as quickly and effectively as possible.
