“Helping students thrive in school is our passion. Our main job is to lend support and expertise to parents as they navigate the often confusing world of special education. All children deserve a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) and we will help ensure your child’s needs are being met.
Every child is unique and therefore Tackle Advocacy’s services are designed around each child and their needs. We attend IEP/504 meetings, review educational documents and help parents obtain the appropriate services for their child.
In addition, Tackle Advocacy provides one-on-one tutoring sessions. These sessions are designed for your child’s unique learning needs. Tackle Advocacy uses school records provided by parents as well as conducting additional educational testing to determine the specific individual learning needs of each student. Goals are set for each tutoring session to help students who have fallen behind or need additional support to better succeed in school. Tutors use a variety of modalities to deliver key information to ensure your child has a strong understanding of the skills presented.
Finally, as a Certified Mental Health First Aid instructor, Annie B. Trent works with parent organizations and schools to teach workshops that help adults learn how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders in youth.”
How are you doing business during the COVID-19 pandemic?
“During this unprecedented time, the individual needs of each student simply cannot be met. It is important not to let our children fall behind.
From attending IEP/504 meetings or parent/teacher conferences to researching the educational options best for each child, Tackle Advocacy understands every child is unique and is offering services designed specifically to meet these individual needs. We want to help each child thrive and we can do this by reviewing IEP goals and 504 accommodations to ensure that they are appropriate and can be addressed while schools are using a blended learning model.
Tutoring is now available in person with appropriate safety measures or virtually using Zoom.”
Why Greensboro ?
“I am a lifelong resident of Greensboro and it is home. I am a product of the public school system, my three children attended public school in Greensboro, and I have taught in the school system here. As a student, parent, teacher and community volunteer, I firmly believe that children can grow and prosper in this community.”
