The Parent Advocacy app is designed for families of deaf and hard of hearing children who attend K - 12 programs. It aids families with advocating for their children during Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings, 504 meetings, and other types of school meetings. 

The app is designed for you to use while on the go, while attending school meetings, or while home. It helps you to prepare for the school meeting, helps you during the meeting, and helps you to continue your efforts after the school meeting.

Be sure to use the interactive check lists to help determine what has been done and what still remains to do. Take notes while using the app , access the listed resources,  and connect with collaborating organizations to deepen your advocacy efforts.

The Parent Advocacy app is a collaboration between the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center at Gallaudet University, the American Society for Deaf Children, Hands & Voices, and the National Association of the Deaf.
