It’s hard to improve on the comments by Suzanne and Judith, but I suppose ‘educational advocacy’ is an example of how the CASA’s most overt role may be to gather information, but that information is ideally to be used to make a productive and informed recommendation, which may be acted upon. The CASDA as an ‘educational advocate’ can communicate with various parties, such as those listed above, who are not necessarily in touch with each other, and make realistic suggestions for addressing the child’s educational needs. Knowledge of the system is essential.
