Always! You wont know what your child is entitled to unless you take one with you or you do the research yourself. Your not there to make friends your there to advocate for your child!

But if I notice that they start running around the table and say they got it covered, then I ask the question on what tools they can put together for my daughter to learn and get a formula in Wich she can hold on too. I don't want my daughter to sh.d

Well,as for me I go alone to the school IEP meeting in Wich is my first. I study my Daughters IEP scores, I learn to let the teachers that r dealing with my Daughters Education to see if they have a plan to work on her weaker parts of her problem.

In Los Angeles, it depends on how much your child needs and how friendly the school site is.If they keep failing your child get a good lawyer. "YOU mean business" Every advocate I have heard of is a waste of precious time. Don't fool around.

No, I don't use one because there is one available and I can't afford to pay a private one. What can I do?

I havn't used one yet but may consider it based on the meeting I had yesterday. I feared that showing up with an advocate sends the wrong message. However, when the parent and child are outnumbered, the child risks losing... I'm looking up advocates!

I did once -- she did a great job. I can't afford one anymore, though
