Amanda Castaneda, Parent

“Nyisha is one of a kind. She went above and beyond for my daughter when her education was hurting. I am first to admit that an IEP is not an easy road to navigate and the school was not much help. My daughter was failing most of her classes with the school not fully assisting. I reached out to Nyisha to assist me with understanding how to navigate the IEP process and with assisting my daughter and what to say to the school. My daughter has had an IEP for 7 years and it was still an unknown world.

Nyisha gave me great recommendations to request and how to ask for them. It was the first time in 7 years I felt confident walking into an IEP meeting and ready to help my daughter excel in school. Nyisha was also available for those quick messages while I was in the meeting to make sure I was requesting the correct things. Since having the IEP fixed my daughter who had a 1.8 GPA is now sitting at a 3.15 and she is the happiest and thriving.

I would recommend Nyisha 110% to anyone who is struggling to understand IEP or if school is just not listening to your child's needs.

Kimberly Jordan, Client

“My nephew, who has Down’s syndrome and is nonverbal, was being tracked to take the on-level STAAR assessment this year, which he is in no way prepared for.

Nyisha was able to explain the new law changes and provide guidance in what, specifically, to ask for in his ARD meeting to ensure he would continue to take the STAAR Alt exam, which is the most appropriate assessment for him if forced to take one.

Without her expertise and guidance, he would have been forced to sit for a test that would have been meaningless for both him and his school.

His parents, our family, and I are incredibly grateful for the experience and knowledge she shares.

Raquel Coston, Parent

Nyisha did an amazing job explaining the paperwork my daughter received from her ARD evaluation. She also helped me by letting me know what rights I have as a parent and what my daughter can receive from special education services. I felt I was prepared when I had my daughter’s initial ARD thanks to her. Thank you Nyisha!”
