Education Advocacy

ARISE’s Education Advocacy provides services to parents who have children with disabilities enrolled in the Syracuse City School District. Our Education Advocate provides parents with the information, resources, skills, and support needed for them to more fully engage with and participate in their child’s education. This leads to collaborative relationships between parents and school staff that ensure children with disabilities receive an appropriate education, which gives them the ability to succeed in school, and to live independent and self-directed lives as adults.
