When I hear the term “educational advocacy” I think of fighting to get an individual the education they deserve. On a case, this could mean speaking with a child’s teacher, guidance counselor, school psychologist, school nurse, dean of students or vice-principal (those who handle the discipline within the school). I would like to find out about a child’s grades, including any developmental assessments, their adjustments in school, including absenteeism, their disciplinary record, any medical or psychological assessment done at the school.
