I have been advocating for my son for many years. I thought I was doing a good job, but I was actually missing opportunities left and right. Meeting Shari changed everything. Shari has a wealth of knowledge and can’t wait to share it. She has such compassion for the children and genuine empathy for the parents. She works for us as if we were her own family. I could have been doing so much more for my son had I met her sooner. My husband and I are so grateful for her programs, her passion, and her genuine joy for helping others. Shari has made a difference in our lives and in the lives of our children. As a lifetime learner and listener, Shari has the heart for advocacy.

“I have been with NEO Advocates for a few yrs now and have worked directly with Shari DeCarlo.  I can say that throughout my journey with Shari not only has she been my Son’s advocate but she has become a close friend.  She has guided me through the IEP process and has been right there with me on IEP meetings which can be very overwhelming.  She has held my Son’s teachers accountable to how and what they are teaching him ensuring he has all the resources he requires to learn.  She is very proficient in the realm of the IEP process and all testing as well as the benchmarks.  I strongly recommend ANY parent that is facing the daunting challenge of the IEP process to work with her as she has your child’s very best interest at heart.

Shari has been so helpful and kind since the first moment we spoke. Her knowledge and advocacy for my child and myself has made a life changing difference in our lives. I have been in a 2 year long battle with my son’s school and unable to get him the help he needed and deserved, Shari came in and got them to listen in such a short amount of time. I can’t express how truly grateful I am to have Shari’s help and guidance through such a traumatic experience and I would recommend her to anyone needing help!!
