Family Member Quotes

“We found Rena at a crucial time in our struggle to get an appropriate placement for our daughter, and an appropriate plan for our son. We had an advocate in place, but had reached an impasse with the school system. Rena came in at the 11th hour in our daughter’s situation and was able to help us negotiate a long term plan for her education. Rena is very knowledgeable with regards to IEPs and 504 plans. She has a very calming presence, but don’t let that fool you–she was tough as nails negotiating the best plan for our children! I really felt like I had someone standing up for my family–truly an advocate. We are forever grateful!!”
