Advocacy Education


Peace Valley Holistic Center will offer on-going programs, seminars, and individual counseling sessions concerning your child’s legal rights for an appropriate education in their school district. These offerings will be provided by our Education Law Attorney, Donnamarie Davis, on a monthly basis.


Lectures will be given for parents/care givers regarding Special Education Law. Ms. Davis has provided instructional seminars for lawyers, teachers, administrators, school psychologists, advocates, and parents of special needs children.


The intention of the Center is to educate parents and give them the tools they need to help their child navigate through their life as a student, and to build a bridge between the parent and the school, by educating the parent about the administrative process.


Please check our website regularly, or call the center for dates/times of lectures provided. There will be a nominal fee/donation of $20.00 per lecture.


    Some examples of what lectures will encompass for the Peace Valley Holistic Center:

  • How can a parent have their child evaluated to determine if they need special education?
  • What are independent evaluations?
  • Developing a special education program
  • What is an IEP (Individualized Education Program)?
  • Who meets to decide the IEP?
  • What is an extended school year?
  • School discipline and student with disabilities
  • What is a NOREP (Notice of Recommended Educational Placement)?
  • What is a FAPE (Free Appropriate Public Education)?
