Thanks for visiting!


Many parents want to advocate for their child but feel overwhelmed by meeting with the school “experts”. 

This is a very normal feeling. We at ADMG Child Advocates want to assist you in effectively obtaining the services your child needs.

We will be with you to aid you in representing your child’s needs. We understand that representing your child’s interests can be frustrating and tiring. We also understand that YOU are your child’s natural “expert”. You cannot leave the job of obtaining the services your child needs to others.

Dr. Al Affonso, has 40 years of experience in the field of education. He has worked with children and families from birth to 21. He has done home visits as an early intervention specialist. He has worked with multi-handicapped children as a classroom teacher. He has spent over 22 years working in various settings from self-contained classrooms to co-teaching at the high school level. He has also served as a Director of Special Education and as a high school principal.

He understands the multitude of issues facing families and school systems. He can help you negotiate with the school on your child’s behalf. He will aid you  to gather information, plan and propose solutions so that you child’s needs are met.
