"I'm losing income by taking time off work and/or paying for private therapies"
"My child's school refuses to change services, and there's been no progress."
I have reinvented the conversation about children with disabilities so that school personnel take ownership and pride in providing an appropriate program. Just ask my clients...
Virginia was the game changer in making things right for our son and his challenges with school. We did everything that we thought we were supposed to do, but soon discovered that it was way more complex. We were completely lost in the shuffle of the system, knowing our rights, and stress of the unknown. Virginia was able to point out things we would never have known about, explain it clearly, and hold everyone accountable in this journey. We trust her emphatically and consider her a part of our family and close circle. We could not have made it to where we are in support of our child without her. KC (Austin)

Virginia Spencer was wonderful to work with. She went above and beyond to help my child. If it weren't for her expertise, we would not have been successful in my child's placement. She came up with ideas that I never would have thought of. She is truly amazing, I highly recommend her. AK (Houston)
Virginia is very caring and knowledgeable. I would not have been able to fight the school for services without her support! CS (Georgetown)
