MILITARY PARENTS AS ADVOCATES AND MENTOR NAVIGATOR PROGRAM Please contact Leah Goss, EFMP-FS Coordinator for more questions and to pre-register. (310) 653-5536 or leah.goss@us.af.mil This is a 6 week certification course for parents who have children that require an IEP. Parents will learn vital information, techniques, resources, advocacy, and strategies for improving the lives of autistic and developmentally disabled children. They will also learn how to identify other families in need and serve as mentors for those families. This is critical in the transient military community, where families often lack traditional support systems such as close-knit family, long-term friendships, and religious institutions. As trained parent advocates, they will receive ongoing training and support for effective community organizing and advocacy, ultimately striving for legislative change and policy shifts.

With each move, families face challenges such as choosing a school, transferring records, immunizations and age requirements, graduatio n requirements, sports, and extracurricular activities. PCS moves, transitions such as moving from elementary school to middle school to high school may create stress for military connected students. This affects students not only mentally, but also academically. As the School Liaison Officer, I am here to help you navigate through the 2nd largest school district in the United States, the Los Angeles Unified School District and 79 other different school districts within 4,084 square mile including of 2,283 schools, and 1,539,260 students that speak 92 different language s.
