I was a desperate mother looking for ways to get my son’s IEP to meet his need. I branched out and contacted a company called C.A.R.D. This company told me that I should get in touch with Kara Pierce. I contacted Kara and she spent over an hour on the phone listening to me, and explaining the rights of my son, myself and the school. Kara has always made herself available to answer my phone calls, or call me back in a timely fashion…She has provided “teachable moments” for families to learn how to meaningfully participate in IEP meetings…I think of Kara as our family’s blessing in disguise. She has helped my son, and she has helped me to learn how to advocate for my child. She is so sweet, and one of the most caring, and amazing people I know…

I cannot say enough positive things about Kara Pierce, and her help and support she provided my family. My twins, who are both in SPED, were not receiving their FAPE…am finally getting the needs of my children to the forefront of discussions. Kara is professional, extremely knowledgeable about the IEP and ED Code, and 100% for the kids!

Thank you Mrs. Pierce, you saved my son’s life. My son was suicidal…You came in and rewrote his IEP and followed up to make sure the school complied…When I found you I was mad and feeling hopeless. You gave my son a chance and thanks to you he is in junior college and doing real well.

Kara is a compassionate and caring person who knows how to get things done for struggling families with children who have disabilities…Kara was able to compel our former school district to provide meaningful, not boilerplate, accommodations and related services to support my son’s special needs…I highly recommend working with Kara if you want your child to have the best opportunity for a successful future.
