Reviews

Reviewer: Down Syndrome Association Hudson Valley, USA
Review: "iAdvocate can provide immediate and specific responses during a CSE meeting when officials try to deny access to services. For example, during a district meeting when the school states "the academic gap is too large for your child to be educated in a general educational setting", the app gives a specific response, such as "according to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), discrepancy in cognitive level cannot be the sole determining factor in placement”."
