New Free iPhone App Gives Parents Information and Strategies to Advocate for their Kids

Developed by a Professor of Education at Syracuse University, iAdvocate provides parents with both information and strategies in regards to their educational rights and getting their child’s needs met. The goal of iAdvocate is to share and develop specific strategies with parents for working collaboratively with a school team to improve their children’s education and to provide the most inclusive and meaningful educational environment for students with disabilities.

iAdvocate provides suggested responses to the obstacles parents commonly face when dealing with the school system. The responses include links to the related IDEA section, court cases, and suggested books, articles, and websites for more information. iAdvocate is available free of charge from iTunes.
