What does FAPE mean?
Krista is amazing!
Krista Barth helped me when I was struggling with understanding the process of getting my daughter’s IEP finalized and understanding what her psychosocial evaluation was saying and how to use that information for educational planning. Krista attended the initial IEP meeting with us and assisted me in making the right choices for my daughter. Krista allowed me to see all options that I had, not only what the school presented that they had/or were able to do. Now that my daughter has all the supports that she needs, she’s doing great. I appreciate all of Krista’s advocacy efforts and support.
