Our experience working with Erica has changed our daughter's life. After years of testing, experts, tutoring, doctors, and more... We came to Erica to put the pieces together and give us real answers- she did that. It has helped our entire family, not just our daughter. I cannot stress enough how kind and compassionate she is while still maintaining professionalism. We will be forever grateful.

Professional and Thorough
Our family has been working personally and professionally with Erica for over three years now. She has mastered the ability to collaborate with representatives from the school district as well as clinical professionals in assisting or family in getting the needs of our child met while keeping us all sane. We have appreciated her expert advise in navigating us through the world of testing, assessments, I&RS, 504 plans, IEP meetings and document implementation as well as district and out of district clinical and legal professionals. She has an in-depth knowledge of the special educational programming within our district and throughout the state. With her assistance in navigating discussions with the district our family now has hope for our child's educational future.

Trust her implicitly
Erica has been invaluable helping us navigate the special education system in our school district and advocating for our teenaged son. Not only does Erica know the intricacies of special education laws, but her confidence in what our child’s rights are provided us a tremendous amount of support throughout a tenuous situation.
The IEP process is complicated and unfamiliar, and Erica quickly helped us gain traction in our case. Our son has come to feel a strong connection with Erica, and has a tremendous amount of respect for her, as do my husband and I. We trust her implicitly. We honestly don’t know what we would have done without her.

Thank you, Erica!
I absolutely know I would not have gotten the services for my children that they need AND ARE ENTITLED to without Erica. As a parent going up against the school district child study team it feels like you are going up against a firing squad. It shouldn’t but our school system is broken. Erica helped make the process simpler for me and knowing that I could trust her expertise at every turn was extraordinarily comforting. Erica was supportive throughout the whole process, explained everything at each step and incredibly thorough going through ALL the files. Going to the Child Study Team meeting she was the upmost professional with the attitude of cooporation but when we did not get what we asked for turned into the bulldog that was required. I’ve recommended Erica to everyone I know going through the challenges and difficulties that as parents of children who have special needs face. Thank you Erica!!!
Working with Erica has been like having a team of Superheros in my back pocket. My daughter has struggled in school since kindergarten. I truly believed that's just the way it would be for her. Until one day Erica Twitchell heard me venting and came to the rescue. I'm not over exaggerating when I say a team of superheros. From start to present, Erica has not only pin pointed Maddie's strengths and weakness, made the testing comfortable for Maddie, provided clear description of the entire process, even possible road bumps with the district, advocates for me at meetings with Delaware Township School, and #1 on my list.... she has also provided emotional support for my daughter in the process. My daughter is more content and our family life has improved. I wish Erica was around when I was a kid. Would have saved me years of struggling in school and negative self-talk.
