I don’t even have enough words to express how thankful I am to Pam and everything she has done to help me and my special needs daughter! She has gone above and beyond time after time for our family! The last two days I dealt with a big bussing issue for my daughter who has a variety of special needs which include CP, g-tube etc. I tried my best to fight the system and solve the issue myself but I felt unheard. I was extremely sad, angry and frustrated! But then my friend Chris mentioned Pam at the Bridgelink and that I should talk to her. Oh boy, did she help?!! She got on the case right away and had so much great advice for me!! We had a three-way phone call with her, me and a director who is in charge of the special needs transportation within minutes. Then an hour later Pam callEd me and let me know that the issue has been resolved and i don’t need to worry about it anymore!! I couldn’t believe it! I was soooo happy and grateful!!! I was finally crying happy tears and not sad anymore. Thank you so much for standing up and fighting for my baby girl, Pam!!! You are amazing!!!
I needed some guidance and hands-on help during the process of initializing special education evaluations for one of my children. I was introduced to Cheri, who responded quickly, accurately, and expertly about federal law and local policy. She was instrumental in aiding the whole process to move forward, despite the school district’s own issues following their own processes. The added accountability that Cheri was able to bring with her to the process was very beneficial - the school understands who she is, what she is all about, and that she is an expert and they backed down from their typical game of passing the buck. Thank you Cheri and thank you Bridgelink for providing this essential service to the community! Our special kids need this help and this standard of care.
