Alicia is an amazing advocate. She has been working with our family for over a year and I only have wonderful things to say. She is detailed, reliable, responsible, organized and everything you could possibly want as an advocate. In addition, she is a warm and kind person who really just wants to help families anyway she can. She has years of experience working with autistic children and even more experience working within the school system. I would recommend anyone to her who is looking for support navigating this extremely complex process or just some advice on ways to work with autistic children. If you are on the fence, just give her a call and have a conversation with her. I promise you won’t be sorry you did!
