"I have two boys who are on the opposite ends of the Autism Spectrum and have very different educational needs. When I used to go to IEP meetings alone, I was always unsure if I had done the right thing for my boys. Did I ask the right questions, had the team fully explored all the options and adhered to state and federal laws? Now with Sandy on our side, I go into IEP meetings so much more confident knowing that an expert is representing our sons and fighting to get them every service and accommodation they might need to excel in school. We’ve used Sandy for almost two years now and I know both my sons’ education had improved because of it.”
“I was working with my daughter’s school for months to get her a 504 plan before they closed for the quarantine. They told me I had to wait until the fall to finish the process. A friend recommended I call Sandy and she was able to help me get the team to meet via Zoom and finish the process before the school year ended in May. She is very knowledgeable, easy to work with, and was very professional. My daughter started the school year this fall with her 504 in place and ready to go. I highly recommend her services.”
"I know there is a lot of great advocates in Florida but a HUGE shout out to Sandy S Santeiro
. She was just what we needed to help us through the finish line in a long process with our school. I cannot recommend her enough if you are looking for someone to help support you in the process. "
“Sandy has been extremely helpful and supportive during our IEP meetings for our son Nick. She has a deep understanding of the educational laws and rights of our special needs kids and will advocate and team with you to get what is needed to support your child’s needs.
We have worked with several advocates and special education lawyers over the past 15 years in New Jersey and Florida and I️ can attest that Sandy is a real gem and will support you with her passion, expertise, and professionalism.”
“I am so thankful that Sandy was able to be a part of our team when we had our eligibility meeting and I am very appreciative that she was able to stay with us when our meeting went well over the scheduled time. Her knowledge and calming nature set the tone for the meeting to be a success and it is no wonder that she has a very good reputation with the education department as stated by Ms. Estell Wolfman ( ESE Staffing Coordinator) during our meeting.”
"We have had the blessing of working with Sandy Santeiro for the past year for our son’s IEP. We have been met with numerous obstacles from his school and Sandy has always been there for us, both as an advocate for our son and to comfort us during some of the difficult times. She is very responsive to our concerns, highly organized, and always knows who to involve to get our son what he needs.”
