Special Education Advocacy Assistance
A small group of xMinds parents who have both experience and training navigating the MCPS special needs system provides help to parents who are new to the system or who need guidance or support in finding a school placement or advocating within the IEP process. These volunteers provide advice, support, and can connect parents with resources (including educational consultants and lawyers, if needed) but these volunteers do not provide legal advice. If you are an xMinds member and you want to speak to one of our volunteer advocates, please contact us. This service is free of charge and only available to xMinds members.
