Eryn is absolutely wonderful to work with and makes a very complicated process easy for parents. I appreciate that she took the time to speak to all of our specialists and really understand what our sons challenges were. While she is firm and tenacious with school districts she does it in such a way that is not at all off-putting or counter productive. I would highly recommend her services for anyone embarking upon the IEP process. She is also a wealth of information and able to refer you to other helpsupport you may need.

Hiring Eryn was the best decision we ever made for our son The IEP process is confusing enough without having to fight to get your child what they need and deserve especially when you dont know exactly what is available... Eryn knows what to ask and doesnt let things slide. Im so happy to have her as part of our team

Eryn has been absolutely critical for our family in navigating the special education needs of our son - she is incredibly knowledgeable on both the process and the peopledynamics involved at the school district. We had been going through the IEP process on our own for almost 9 years and thought we knew what we were doing - but after working with her this year my only regret is that we didnt reach out to her sooner

Without Eryns guidance and support our son would have gone without the services and attention that he deserved and needed. Navigating the educational system during work hours is impossible as working parents and because thats what is required we reached out to Eryn to guide us through the system and to do the work we simply could not do ourselves.While were working managing our household and enjoying time with our kids Eryn is working behind-the-scenes with district personnel teachers and specialists--essentially doing the work we cant and dont know how to do.Importantly during the multiple IEPs Eryn took the lead and alleviated the heavy-lifting and stress that we found exhausting on our end before we decided to have her on our team. Moreover she aptly understands how to integrate grace with firmness. She was sensitive to our needs as well as the schools and because she has a good relationship the district we bypassed and overcame hurdles that we previously encountered and our requests were granted. She was able to secure services for our son that the district was reluctant to provide when my husband and I requested them ourselves. Simply put her expertise and energy were invaluable to us.Eryn definitely exceeded our expectations of what an educational advocate can do. She happens to be a stellar human being on top of being a standout advocate and we believe that this is largely why she is so effective. We highly recommend Eryn. She is simply amazing.

Words dont seem adequate to describe how amazing the team at advocate to educate is. Eryn has met and exceeded all of my expectations as an educational advocate. She is highly knowledgeable in every aspect of her job. She will fight for the rights of all of her clients children just as she would her own child. The only suggestion I have is that they add ABC - ABOVE BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY after their title Thank you from the bottom of my mommy heart for ALL youve done for my child Eryn. You are truly a gift to children that need you.
