I give the highest recommendation to Elissa Henkin I could possibly give. She has been by our side since our special needs son was 3. We thought we could handle the IEP process on our own, but sadly we were wrong. Elissa consulted with us, came to our second IEP and turned things around for us.
The school district wanted to send our son to a special needs school when he is clearly capable of general Ed. She fought for him and we got everything we wanted and more. She has since attended every IEP we have had, and each IEP meeting is smooth and easy. She is very reasonably priced, she is knowledgeable. and she has good relationships with the schools. I am grateful to have her has a resource and have recommended her to countless friends who have been equally as happy.
