Neither Lauren Ochalek nor Beth Nolan are attorneys or legal experts. Education Team Allies does not, under any circumstances, offer legal advice. Furthermore, Education Team Allies does not educate on how to file state complaints or due process. A working relationship with Education Team Allies will focus solely on strategies to support families through the IEP (or 504) process who are NOT in critical situations. We serve families across the state of Maryland as well as other areas of the country where our services are needed.
Working with Education Team Allies is specifically designed to support families who need to learn how to become an equal member of their child's educational team through positive interactions, creating appropriate paper trails, and knowing what questions to ask to get the results their child needs. Our focus is on collaborative efforts to help students achieve.
