Navigating the special education process can be a daunting, frustrating and costly experience for parents who often can’t find the information and resources they need at the time they need them. Parents of struggling students often complain they are stymied by the process of evaluating, then planning out the most effective and well-suited educational direction for their child.
"As an education advisor for more than 15 years, I grew frustrated turning away 95% of the calls from people who needed help for their child but couldn't afford it," said
The resources parents can access using this platform take students from preschool, right up through their college years, thereby providing long-term direction, not just short-term solutions.
Acting as both a virtual advocate and assistant, myEdGPS makes education planning easier than ever by:
- Prescribing an action plan
- Tracking progress against key milestones
- Drafting effective letters to school
- Providing an online binder for all materials
- Matching individual needs to paying partner programs, providers and schools
Most of the tools and information myEdGPS offers are free or at minimal cost to help parents, regardless of their income, turn roadblocks into roadmaps for their
children. If you’re interested in test driving myEdGPS, sign up for the beta test at www.myEdGPS.com
