What People Are Saying
“I have had the honor of knowing Courtney, not only as an advocate but also as the parent of one of the students in my classroom. As a parent herself, Courtney was very knowledgeable about her rights as a parent and worked with the school team to ensure that her daughter received the services and care she deserved. From a teacher’s perspective, I need to stress that she worked WITH the school team. We didn’t battle. It wasn’t a fight. We worked together for what was best for her daughter, and I agreed with everything Courtney desired and expected”.
“It is so refreshing to have somebody working with special needs children, that has a special needs child. This makes her more compassionate, caring, and so much more understanding of some of the everyday challenges, we as parent’s face raising these special kids”
“Courtney was absolutely knowledgeable and knew to the tiniest detail what she was talking about! She was very understanding and gave me some incredible advice and even examples of what I need to do and say to help my daughter out! She definitely knows her stuff and made me feel very confident in what we needed to be done!!”
