Success Stories From Our Parents!


"My family could not have had a better experience. The only regret I have is not reaching out to child advocacy of RI sooner. From the first meeting each and every concern and issue was handled with the highest level of professionalism and dedication. Joanna was very active and dedicated to my child’s needs and concerned about the very best outcome considering all situations. I highly recommend this office if you have a child in need of an advocate. Thank you again for the way you have helped our family . Without your help my son would be entering his highschool years without the proper IEP." - Parent from Exeter-West Greenwich School District

"Joanna and Mary Lou have been nothing short of a blessing! Their support, guidance and encouragement were priceless in searching for a peace of mind regarding my son's education and 504 plan. Where so often parents feel alone on this front, there's nothing better than having amazing people at your side helping you advocate for the best education for your child. Thank you so much ladies for making a world of difference!" - Parent from North Kingstown School District

"It was so refreshing to speak to Joanna. She knows the education landscape in RI so well." -Parent from Cranston School District 

"Mary Lou Rossi, our Educational Advocate, was an invaluable asset during our pursuit to have an IEP put in place for our grandson. We were doing this on our own for over a year and felt the 504 was not enough. Her agency was referred to us and she assisted us in and to understand the process. Thank you so much, Mary Lou." - Parent from Providence School District
