Syracuse University School of Education professor Alan Foley has designed and launched a new iPhone app to help parents better advocate for their children with disabilities. iAdvocate is a free application available through iTunes that provides information on advocacy strategies for parents to help ensure school-aged children with disabilities are provided appropriate services and resources in their education. The idea behind iAdvocate is to empower and engage parents, make them aware of their rights and introduce them to a variety of resources, says Foley, associate professor in the Department of Instructional Design, Development and Evaluation (IDDE). He hopes the app better prepares parents to work more collaboratively with school professionals to achieve positive outcomes for their children’s education.
