Our Story


Rhode Island Advocacy for Children is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization that was founded by parents of children with special needs. Our organization works to advocate for children by helping families navigate through the complexities of educational rights. We work to provide a voice to families and to advocate for their child’s unique needs. We know that it takes courage to ask for help and how overwhelming it is to navigate through an educational system that doesn’t work for your child. We are the additional support that families require to remove educational obstacles and to discover their child’s potential in both school and life!

Advocating for a child’s educational rights is overwhelming, stressful, and filled with questions. Where do I turn for help? What should be addressed at a school meeting? What if I disagree with the school? How do I know what to ask for? How do I make sure that my child is getting what they need?

If you are unsure about your child’s needs, please contact us! We will be able to tell you if we are the right fit for you!
