Caring for a neurodivergent student or ‘being’ a neurodivergent individual yourself, can feel isolating, emotionally charged and overwhelming. It can help to have an experienced guide break down the steps of what to do next and connect you to the best supports available.

One area an academic advocate can help with is school meetings, which can feel intimidating. Kingdon and Associates can help prepare you for the meeting and/or advocate in the meeting with you, acting as a bridge between home and school, and promoting the needs of the student in a way that has maximum impact and gets results. These meetings could include the Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC), Individualized Education Program (IEP), or college accommodation meetings.

Kingdon and Associates can provide ongoing communication with the home, school, and other service providers (such as Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, etc.). This ensures a unified, collaborative approach and connection to home, so that everyone involved is on the same page regarding a student’s current needs and effective strategies.

Each child is an individual. No caregiver wants to see their child simply pushed through to the next grade without fully addressing their global learning needs in a way that nurtures their development in all areas of life: socially, emotionally, mentally, physically and academically.
