Help with uncooperative school district - Pleasanton area
My nephew, who lives near Pleasanton with his family, was recently diagnosed with a learning disability. His family is now trying to navigate the educational bureaucracy and to ensure that his learning needs are being fully met. The school district has dragged its feet and has not been very cooperative in making sure that his needs are met - it took years just for the school to agree to get him tested. Since educational requirements and education policy are so complex and it's very difficult knowing how to navigate the system, his family is looking to retain the services of an education advocate. My understanding is that this is the beginning of a very long road. Does anyone have any advice for the family? Perhaps even more importantly, do you have recommendations for an education advocate who serves the Pleasanton area? Are there resources that the family should be connected to? Any and all advice would be very, very welcome.
