Allison is extremely knowledgeable and you can see that right when you start talking to her. She helped us tremendously during our IEP meeting and without her help and expertise we would never have gotten the results we wanted and what was best for our child. If you are having any seconds thoughts about hiring her don't, she will fight in a polite way for your child.
Allison, thank you so much for all your hard work, dedication, compassion and understanding. I felt from our first meeting you understood how to help me advocate for my child. As a parent of a special needs child, it meant the world to me that I could count on you. You had my child's best interests and you gave me the emotional and professional help I needed. I highly recommend Allison for her professionalism, knowledge, compassion and making sure my child received the very best. Thank you always.
Im a parent of a set of six year old twins, one diagnosed with autism the other language disorder. Anyone who has a child with special needs knows the challenges and pressure it is just with everyday life and making the right decisions concerning school and just getting the most out of their education. Ms.Hertog is heaven sent, she's one of the best decisions I've made for their education. She's knowledgeable and professional. The school my kids attended wasn't very knowledgeable of ASD so they didn't know how to relate or handle him in certain situations but all of that changed once Ms.Hertog got involved, She got the school to bring in his very own paraprofessional, she made better IEP goals, and even had professionals to come out to the school and educate his teacher on learning strategies they even started to implement learning devices in his classroom. Im so very thankful for Ms. Hertog for making school work for my family.
Mrs. Hertog help with the Miami dade school system and the elementary school to get a correct placement for my son . The past year my son was in kindergarten class with a teacher that was not addressing his behavior issues , he was getting U in conduct and he was getting E academically. Although we were not able to extend he's EIP because he didn't qualified we were able to work with the school system . Mrs. Hertog walk me throughout this difficult and emotional process , the only thing I regret is that I didn't hire her sooner.
Allison's unique background and qualifications, make her a superb resource for those parents in need of guidance and counseling to find the proper resources an accommodations for the education of their children. She helped us to maximize the educational benefits of our 7-year old and fought for him along the way. Allison is passionate for what she does and always go the extra mile to ensure the understanding of the process, the alternatives available and the expected outcome of each initiative. Based on the above, I highly recommend Allison's services to achieve the best results in your educational accommodation needs.
Incredible knowledge and patience to achieve an incredible outcome. Allison is very attentive, thoughtful and assertive (as needed). Her ability to work through the matter while utilizing her key contacts was essential to our success. Allison helped us receive the much needed educational help for our child in less than a month, which we had been seeking for over a year before her assistance. I would give her my highest recommendation for her services.
Allison has been such a blessing to my family. After being denied twice by the College Board for accommodations for my sons, Allison diligently worked to successfully acquire the extra time they needed. She not only helped with the legal aspects of the process her knowledge on the challenges my sons were facing were very comforting. She has gone above & beyond her services to ensure my sons received the accommodations they deserved. Thank you Allison we will be forever grateful and definitely will recommend you to anyone that needs your services.
I found Allison to be very knowledgeable about the special education process overall. I found that her special education background helped enormously during the entire IEP process. Her non-confrontational approach has made the IEP process run very smoothly. She was able to achieve beyond what we expected was even remotely possible or achievable. Having someone as knowledgeable as Allsion also helped alleviate the anxiety that we have had in the past with the IEP process. She was also very pleasant to work with and very accommodating with scheduling for meetings as well. I would hire Allison again in the future to help with our child and would highly recommend her to other parents as well!
