Here is what people are saying about Stephanie Wynn:
"Stephanie Wynn is the key to IEP success with Clark County School District. Our family and faith in the school system was broken. We had experienced one failure after another. We came to Stephanie with an ineffective, underdeveloped BIP, IEP, unethical classroom management, severe increase in behavior, and no academic progress. Stephanie fought for our son. She believed in him and worked alongside us every step of the way making sure every detail was attended to. She was able to change what seemed to be a hopeless situation completely around in less than a year. My son is happy and thriving both socially and academically. We are extremely grateful and can’t thank her enough for all that she has done."

"I cannot stress the importance and the difference an advocate has made in my children's and my experience in the public education system. Stephanie; you have been a godsend!"

"Thank you Stephanie from the bottom of our hearts for supporting us through the IEP process. We had a hard fight to get our daughter into the proper placement and we could not have succeeded without your skills and determination. You truly went above and beyond and we are forever grateful. Our daughter is doing wonderfully because you believed in her"

_"My son was lost in the school system. Services were not being met, failing grades, and lots of frustration. It came to the point that we knew we needed an educational advocate. _Stephanie Wynn has been absolutely essential in our son's education. If it wasn't for her we'd still be battling our school district. It has a been a wonderful learning experience working side by side with her advocating for my son's education. She prepared me as a parent to continue advocating for my son."

"We came to Stephanie ready to give up, I had fought with my child's school for 2 years with no results before finding Stephanie. I was frustrated and unsure of the next step but I knew I had to continue to fight for my child. When I met with Stephanie she assured me that my concerns were valid and that she would fight for my child, as if it were her own. This is exactly what she did! She educated my husband and I every step of the way, and more importantly she supported us every step of the way. Without Stephanie we would still be fighting with the district, but it is because of Stephanie my child has the IEP that he needs and has begun to thrive in school."
