Read more on what parents are saying about AJE….

“I’ve attended many training sessions provided by AJE. They were all excellent. The presenters were knowledgeable, patient and insightful. The presenters know what parents are up against as we endeavor to advocate for our children against all odds. It is difficult enough to raise a child who learns and behaves differently than her peers. AJE helps balance the load for parents like me.”
– Parent of a child with Multiple Disabilities

“My advocate made sure that I was aware of the timelines involved in the (Special Education) process, and that I did my leg-work. It was such an empowering experience that I am now giving back and empowering other parents in navigating the process.”
– Parent of a child with Down Syndrome

“The advocate assigned to us listened to my concerns and made helpful suggestions for courses of action. She attended a school meeting with me and assisted me in filing a State Complaint. The advocate did not make decisions for me but helped me think through the presenting factors and make sound decisions for myself. The progress we made is something I feel I would not have been able to do without AJE.”
– Parent of a child with Other Health Impairment

“AJE was the best thing that has ever happened to me and my child. Before using AJE services I had no support from the school system. When I had concerns, I wasn’t given the support and/or resources that could have been provided from the school to help my son become successful. My son has been given a fair chance because of AJE.”
– Parent of a child with behavioral needs

“I contacted AJE seeking assistance with special education problems at my son’s school. I was frustrated and at my wits end. AJE was able to assign an advocate to assist me who not only attended meetings with me but also educated me on the special education process. AJE is a magnificent, trusted and valuable organization to have in the District of Columbia.”
