Education Advocate

Meet April Rehrig

Hey, I'm April

And I'm totally excited to help you develop a solid action plan for your child!

I grew up in a family of educators, working in every type of school.

My collaborative approach combines special education advocacy with real-world strategies that work.

After writing thousands of reports and just as many IEPs, I developed breakthrough Do It Yourself IEP Workshops that get results. Learn to advocate the way you've always wanted, NOW. 

As founder of Rise Educational Advocacy and Consulting, I'll help you Build a Better IEP!™️

A native Californian, I've always called Los Angeles home. My husband and I share 7 children between us (yes, it's the Brady Bunch).

When I'm not passionately advocating, you'll find me at the gym or digging into my husband’s great food. My playful pug Luna, commands the home and warms my heart with her crooked smile.
