Amicus: a free service for families of special needs children.

Amicus for Children, Inc (AFC) is a non-profit organization formed in 1999 by two moms - one an educator and the other an attorney. AFC provides free services to parents of special needs children to help them be their children's "first and best advocate." Examples of AFC services include: providing information on special education law and best practices in special education, helping families navigate the maze of special services, helping families become active participants in their children's educational and treatment planning, providing families with feedback on IEP's & behavior plans, and helping families connect with appropriate services. AFC does not provide direct legal representation to families. AFC is funded by grants & donations and serves families from all over the United States. An on-line service request form can be found on the Amicus website at
