Nancy Perkins Special Education Advocate

With nearly a quarter century of providing professional experience addressing special needs for children and their families, I’m proud to have made a positive difference in people’s lives.   I’ve led parenting groups, recreation groups for children on the autism spectrum and have provided individual counseling as well.


Possessing a Licensed Master of Social Work degree, (LMSW) I can advocate for services to parents/guardians of children who are under the auspices of the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE), Committee on Special Education (CSE) and Early Intervention (EI) Systems.  If you choose to work with me, you can be assured I will handle your child’s issues with empathy and compassion.
