Are You The

Parent Of A Child With Special Needs?

My name is Krista Barth and I am a special needs advocate and parent adviser. As a former special education teacher and Masters Graduate in Special Education, I have been navigating this arena for fifteen years. I have learned how Florida public schools operate and understand the educational options available. I have created and assisted in the implementation of over five hundred and twenty Individual Educational Plans (IEP’s) and 504 Plans. Wherever you are at in your special education journey, from Early Steps/FDLRS to transition from high school, I can offer you help.

Welcome To

My Educational Solutions

With an understanding of IDEA and Section 504 Issues and a background of effectively teaching special needs students before pursuing an advocacy career, Krista Barth is able to transform ineffective individual educational plans into meaningful documents that will ensure that parents have IEP/504 Plans that are being implemented with fidelity.

Additionally, she has assisted twenty five plus parents of gifted students in collaborating with school teams to create dynamic Educational Plans, for both solely eligible gifted students, as well as Dual Eligible students.

CONSULTING

We consult with the parents of children with special needs to empower the parent with information about the special education process so the parent can make informed decisions. We attend meetings, review data, provide information about the parents’ and child’s rights and assist the parent in advocating for their child’s rights as a special education student.

ACADEMIC SUPPORT

With experience in creating and overseeing the implementation of measurable and meaningful IEP’s, we are able to collaborate with parents and IEP teams in all stages of the IEP process and problem solve when conflict arises, ultimately ensuring that the child we are serving progresses year to year.

BEHAVIORAL SUPPORT

Students with behavioral challenges have very specific protocol that schools must follow before considering moving a student to a more restrictive environment. Additionally, there are discipline procedures for students with disabilities that differ from the procedures in place for all students. We can help you navigate this arena…

PHONE

My Educational Solutions

We offer phone consultations: for the do-it-yourself parents that need a little help and guidance. These parents might not want to spend the money to hire and have an advocate by their side, but we strongly recommend whether it is us or another advocacy company. We are IEP Advocates, Special Needs Advocates, and Educational Advocates that service the following counties: Miami-Dade county: some including Surfside, Brickell, Coral Gables, Broward county, Palm Beach county, Collier county, Monroe county, and Brevard county. We are willing to travel anywhere in South Florida and beyond to help children in need of our services and their loving families.

Krista thinks 5 steps ahead for you

Special Needs Advocate

Krista was amazing every step of the way! She gathered all of the relevant information and told me the best options for our situation. She is very good at what she does, professional and thorough. Best of all, she is a mom who understands where you are at. Something I loved about Krista was that she was very honest when it came to her fees and even helped me find ways to make our money work more effectively for us. Many advocates charge blindly, but Krista thinks 5 steps ahead for you. Highly recommended! We used her for IEP meetings and to file a complaint against the district. Now we have a flawless IEP and my son has all the services he needs.

Krista is an amazing professional to work with!

Navigating the school system for special needs children

She is very resourceful and knowledgeable about navigating the school system for special needs children. We have learned so much and have been able to formulate a strategy for giving our son the best chance in his education. She took her time to read reports, study data and provide resources and recommendations. She’s obviously passionate about what she does and very supportive through the process. I’m thankful I found her!

Thank you Mrs. Barth for being my families advocate!

Child living with ADHD

I am so grateful for the support Krista Barth has been able to provide both my son and I as we navigate dealing with the public school system. She has been instrumental in assuring my son receives the appropriate educational support for a child living with ADHD. Our journey has just begun but with Ms. Barth’s support, I have accomplished so much more for my son than I could have ever done alone.

Krista’s bank of knowledge is endless

Help with the IEP Process

I hired Krista over a year ago to facilitate and educate me regarding my 10 year old daughter’s IEP process. I’m still working with Krista as she helps me navigate the extremely complex special education system in a public school setting.

She is the most thorough and well versed professional I have ever encountered on my daughter’s educational journey. Krista is the absolute best advocate for my daughter and any family going through the special education process.

She goes above and beyond to meet varying needs of students and clients

My Educational Solutions is headed by an incredible advocate, former educator and exceptional person. Krista goes above and beyond to meet the varying needs of students and clients. As a teacher, I consult with Krista regularly to ensure that I’m following all processes and procedures with the struggling students in my classroom. She is my professional development when it comes to Exceptional Student Education, 504 Plans and IEP’s. Having worked with Krista and two different schools, I can tell you that I would use her for my own child if I ever needed to do so!
