“Our son is a high functioning special needs teenager who has struggled with social and pragmatic anxiety at a very young age. We've been working with Aidan Allman-Cooper for well over two years now to better understand our son's needs and to seek out better alternatives as he attends high school. We have our share of challenges and getting the support and services he needs at our local school district has been diffiicult. Mr. Allman-Cooper has been an advocate for us to better understand the laws directly affecting our son's special needs and has educated us to a great degree. Aidan is very well versed in the laws directly affecting special needs kids and would highly recommended him to any family looking to ensure that their child gets what he or she deserves. We are so grateful for everything he has done for us." -Mr. and Mrs. L
"I would like to share my testimonial to the community-at-large in order to help those who may need a special needs advocate to help your family, child, or student with their educational needs. I am a single mom of a daughter with special needs and without the expertise and guided direction of Aidan Allman-Cooper, I don't know if I would have had much, if any, guidance and support throughout this IEP journey. Mr. Allman-Cooper is dedicated, hard working, and persistent in getting the services the students rightfully deserve. His knowledge about the IEP process and expertise in educational law is invaluable! Mr. Allman-Cooper is compassionate, incredibly knowledgeable with special education, and will fully execute and follow through with determination to ensure your child or student in his care will be given the utmost respect in providing them a positive future within the maze of the public school system. As a single mom who took a leave of absence to homeschool and help my child, Mr. Allman-Cooper went the extra mile and always made sure any outside needs were required during this long journey of navigating her educational needs. He showed such compassion and care in any way he could, and was helped immensely by the community in order to help my daughter and I have an easier Holiday season. I cannot thank Aidan enough for his willingness to be an advocate for our kids within the educational field but also an advocate for those struggling in other difficult circumstances. There's a lot to be said for advocating for our children and students, but to advocate for families struggling outside of their primary job, to me, is a clear indication of what real compassion stands for and to what championing for families really means. There is a quote from the movie Blindside that puts this review to its finest words that speak of Mr. Allman-Cooper and his passion for our students with special Needs, and I hope it speaks volumes to those who are in need of the most dedicated of advocates.
"You are a unique person, created for a specific purpose.
Your gifts matter, your story matters.
Your dreams matter
With much gratitude,

"My son has ADHD and behavioral issues, as well as learning concerns. The moment I reached out to Aidan, that was a changing day in my life. Aidan was dedicated and provided extensive support in educating me not only on how to navigate the special education process effectively, but educating me on what programming is best for my son. His constant support in school meetings and communicating with my son's medical team has given me a sense of peace in a time of tremendous difficulty. Aidan has also had the opportunity to tutor my son and has provided emotional support for myself, but for my son as well. Aidan is a truly caring person and SECA has helped my son's life as well as my life as well. I strongly recommend you call SECA if you want constant support and compassion in whatever challenges your child may be facing." -DH
