When you find out your child’s school is not following their IEP, panic, chaos and fear follow. Reaching out to Carrie when this happened to our son helped bring clarity to the situation. Learning what options were available allowed us to move forward confidently to a resolution with the school district. Carrie knew how to approach the school in a non-threatening manner. While singularly acting in our son‘s best interest, this allowed the situation to be resolved without due process. Having Carrie to help navigate this ordeal was paramount in its resolution.

I hired Ms. Clodi to help me get full guardianship over my brother in law. Without her help, I don't know what we would have done. I would hire her again! Thanks to Carrie, we won the case and now I have a voice for him. I can't say it enough how thankful we are!

This year presented IEP changes that I did not feel were in the best interest of our son. I reached out to Ms. Clodi. Carrie listened to all of my concerns, respectfully and carefully. She was able to break each one down and address them individually. Carrie was able to explain the needs and expectations from both the education perspective and the best interest of the child perspective. She gave me confidence and strength going into the IEP meeting that I never had before. I felt informed and ready with specific questions about my concerns. I also appreciated Carrie's follow up to the IEP meeting and answered any extra concerns. Thank you!

Special Education Services with Inclusion
When we moved to a new school district, Carrie was instrumental in helping us develop an IEP with inclusion options for our son who has down syndrome. He had a very good year and made many new friends at his school thanks to the detailed plan we set in place with Carrie's expertise and guidance.

Guardianship and Legal Services
We highly recommend Ms. Ganci Clodi for special needs legal services! We used her for our twins with Down Syndrome for guardianship and we will continue to use her with any other things that may arise due to our boys' legal needs! Thank you for your efficiency and compassion! 10 star rating!

High School Placement
Carrie was very helpful in answering our questions about placement for our son when he entered high school. The information she gave us was useful in our IEP meetings, where we requested a change to the initial placement that was recommended by the high school Special Education Director. We felt the school's recommendation was based on his diagnosis, rather than his abilities. With Carrie's advice, we were able to secure a higher level placement for our son, which provided a more challenging and interesting environment for him to learn.

We are beyond grateful for our experience with Carrie Ganci-Clodi. We have been in need of her assistance multiple times over the past 10 years. Carrie has always exemplified compassion and professionalism, and above all has always kept the best interest of our children a top priority.
