Get an IEP

You want to make sense of everything to help your child. You want a school psychologist to SHOW what reports mean so that you can participate like a pro. You need an advocate to help you find every bit of data.

Get Better Reports

Up until now, communication with your school has been a headache. You want an EXPERT to show you what to ask for and how to get it. You need help getting your school to listen. You want an ADVOCATE to help get things back on track.

Get Better Communication

IEPs have been a continual mess. You feel alone, and it makes you insane! What's said and what's actually written down never match up. You want to be FULLY prepared for meetings. You need an advocate to show the way.

What people are saying about RISE Workshops:

Without April’s IEP workshops, my son would have never gotten the IEP he needed. For years, we had been asking to get him tested. As a single dad, I couldn’t find the help I needed online. Everything was just so confusing… I stumbled into Rise and took April’s How to Request testing Workshop. Within days, I turned in my letter. No joke, the district said “yes” right away. To top it off, my son got a good evaluation and an IEP with the right services. I ended up taking all of April’s Workshops. They are a game changer! Take her workshops if your child has an IEP or needs one."

“After finishing the How to Request Testing Workshop, I have a clear understanding of parental rights, how to ask for testing (and a template to help), along with strategies to make it through the entire process! April's done a fantastic job explaining and helping parents know how to navigate the journey with ease. We are not alone.”

“Taking the Understanding Reports Workshop taught me the importance of recommendations being tied to IEP goals and why referrals help identify the right tests to give! Eligibility is based on the IEP team and not solely on the assessor’s recommendation. I feel more confident explaining psycho-educational reports, after taking the course.”

Trying to get your kid tested for a disability in public schools can be a confusing, and even harrowing, experience. There are so many barriers to testing that it seems impossible it will ever get done. Rise Educational Advocacy's How to Request Testing Workshop makes this labyrinthine process clear and accessible. The course helped me realize I need to use certain, specific, words and phrases in my communication with the school in order to actually get my child tested (instead of just scheduled for endless meetings with no real progress). I'm so grateful for April and Rise Education - thanks so much for your help."
