An educational Advocacy is an individual that knows all the ins and outs of the educational system. Hopefully it is an individual who is very familiar with the child/children’s school district. Laws and resource services of that exact district. Has some back ground on the child’s history of school as well as their psychological capabilities. School history as far as academics and socialization and activities up to current and maybe some knowledge of the child’s desires. Much of this depends on the age of the youth. A very large part of children’s lives are spent in the school building and with the staff.
