Positive Advocacy Strategies with Ed Mahony – The Identification Placement Review Committee (IPRC) Process


Effective advocates:

  • understand special education, and more general educational regulations and policies
  • have a sense of the laws that support special education and they use practical approaches and strategies to move their concerns through the educational system
  • know who to talk to first and who to engage next and they have a sense of how not to interact with schools in a way that undermines their efforts

Ed Mahony of Mahony Advocacy believes “people smarts” and a sense of the human dimension of schools makes the difference when effectively advocating in the Ontario School System.

Watch Ed explore the important skills that a parent advocate needs to develop in order to be successful, as well as how to make the Identification Placement Review Committee (IPRC) process work.
