Northshore Families Helping Families partners with the Louisiana State Department of Education to offer advocacy and family support for students with exceptionalities, both while in school and as the student graduates and transitions into adult life. Our Education Specialists are trained to assist families with every step of the process.

  • Information- Our staff offers information through consultations, meetings, workshops, and conferences as well as through our Lending Library, where parents can access books on IEPs and various exceptionalities.
  • Advocacy- Families can arrange an in-person meeting with our staff to discuss the individual child and get advice on how to advocate for him or her, and to ensure their needs are being met.
  • Peer to Peer Support- Our staff can connect a family in need of support to another family in their area that can offer their encouragement and support.
