"In our time working with Martha Orbovich she has demonstrated an acute understanding of the IEP process and the state's educational laws. She is able to take much of the standard verbiage and break it down in simple terms. Martha is patient, receptive to ideas and suggestions, and her attention-to-detail is second to none. Her knack for catching typos and understanding that simply changing one word or adding one sentence to a section can make a substantial impact to the student's overall plan. Our goal is to provide the best education and support for our daughter and we are fortunate to have Martha as part of our team."

I first started working with Martha when my daughter was at the end of her 5th grade year and the school did an ETR for services to determine that she would be put on a 504. She had been on an IEP since 2nd grade. I knew she was struggling and that this struggle was real. Martha helped me file an objection and request another review because I felt my daughter needed an IEP. This was a difficult time. Martha knew how to navigate this process. She helped me stay grounded throughout it. After the second review the school found that my daughter qualified for special education services and an IEP. My daughter is now in 9th grade and Martha has continued to help me and my daughter to make sure she has appropriate accommodations and services. I've learned that it's always best to have Martha attend meetings with me, as I've felt blindsided during meetings without her there. I am very glad for the insight and experience that Martha brings to the table. I'd recommend her to anyone seeking help in securing an appropriate education for their kiddo."

"Martha is so wonderful to work with and really puts my fears to rest as she understands the system and laws so well. In our recent IEP meeting, she asked the right questions at the right time so that the team could come up with the best plan for my son. She is a clear and charitable communicator and thorough with her review of materials. She always is thinking ahead and helping to make connections for us so that my son will have what he needs. I couldn't imagine fighting for my son's special education needs without her! Thanks, Martha!"
