The Advo-Kids special education team is made up of special education lawyers, paralegals and educational advocates who believe children of all ability levels should have the same chances for success in school as their peers. Advo-Kids began as the special education practice at the law offices of Posternock Apell, PC, but we noticed that not all of the families coming to us for help necessarily needed the attention of a lawyer. By partnering with educational advocates, we can offer tiers of support and services tailored to what a student needs.


Our special education team follows a three-pronged approach to ensure that every child receives an individualized education based on their unique abilities.
