""The NSEAI – BCEA training is the national GOLD standard for identifying qualified special education advocates. It focuses on the core issues of educational advocacy and the required cross training, across educationally related specialties, to be successful. Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity. I never stopped learning during the whole program! ""
""Finally! a professional organization that addresses Special Education Advocacy with a focus on educational and clinical expertise vs. just a narrow legal approach to advocacy.""
""This organization respects the unique contribution that Special Education Advocates bring to the table – not matter what their original training. My class included teachers, school administrators, Parents, Students, Psychologist, OTs, S/L Therapists, RN’s and Lawyers. It is rare, as a professional educator and school psychologist that I recommend a program so highly. It was a wonderful experience!""
""It is refreshing not to be considered a hand maiden to a lawyer without the rights and privileges of a paralegal. I am not here to write briefs or do legal research, quote the law and make legal decisions. My goal and NSEAI’s goal is to address a student’s broad educationally based needs and consult on the development of an effective IEP or 504 plan. After taking this training I now feel so much more prepared to do just that and assured that my client’s children will receive a Free and APPROPRIATE Public Education.""
""I have taken so many seminars. Never have I taken a course of study so well formulated and broadly based so as to cross train a seasoned Special Education Advocate like myself to do my job and do it with a renewed level of excellence.""
""I feel great finally being acknowledged as a BCEA. I have gone to national education advocacy trainings and trainings in the multiple areas surrounding education and supporting those with disabilities to get a FAPE." "
""The historic lack of any standards, in this industry, has allowed poorly-qualified advocates to promote themselves. NSEAI has set a new national standard now so that everyone has the same quality information allowing us to effectively advocate. Being a BCEA is my top ranked professional credential""
"• “I learned things I could not have googled! The most comprehensive collection of advocacy information I have ever found, and I’ve taken ALL the other national trainings. I did not know what I did not know and I have been a professional advocate for years!” "
" "You gave us an effective and new way to use our knowledge and experience – thank you over and over again. Child focused - I changed my son's IEP before the second class - what a difference! Conferences are exciting and we laugh alot." "
"I participated in one of my son’s IEP meetings and I left with a bad feeling in my gut. Right around that time, I got a flyer with information to become an Board Certified Education Advocate. Making the decision to take that training has been life changing for our family. The IEP process is not that scary once you understand it in detail. I’ve learned to state my concerns in language that my team responds to. I’ve learned how to get my concerns properly documented and how to pinpoint exactly what my child needs are and how to appropriately ask for his needs to be addressed. "
" "A very positive influence on my career. Thank you for the gift of these courses. I still laugh when I think of the stories you all told us. Great information given in a way that you can apply – you didn’t just give us information - you showed us how to use it!" "
"I cannot keep up with the amount of business I have. I could hire 4 more people. This was an amazing entry into the field of education advocacy. You have changed so many lives!"
