Nakata Consulting
For some families, like my own, often disability presents a different set of challenges. As a parent of a child with special needs, I have learned first hand how to build a “team” with schools, educators, and other service providers. To that end, my office offers special education advocacy services, guiding parents through the IEP and special education process, working to help children develop their skills and capacity in order to maximize their potential through proper supports and services both academically and socially. My belief is that as parents, practitioners, researchers, and educators, we should form partnerships within communities in order to facilitate personal choice, self-determination, and the social, educational, and economic welfare of all children, especially those with special needs as they transition into adulthood.
