“School IEP meetings could feel daunting, and I would not have time and energy to prepare as I would like. Having the Power UP team, who understood and knew our son well, by our side made us feel empowered and confident that our son’s educational needs and medical recommendation would be carefully reviewed and appropriately applied. The collective experience, advocacy and dedication to students at Power UP is invaluable. I am grateful for their guidance through the early years of our son’s educational needs.” – Alex’s Mom
