Our Director Natasha Chase keeps SLA moving forward. She meets with every new family to evaluate their case. She works closely with the Advocates, providing invaluable advice and supervision.
Natasha has two Master’s degrees, in education and social work. She is a graduate of the Wurzweiler School of Social Work of Yeshiva University. She comes to special education advocacy with an appreciation for cultural differences and an eagerness to help parents and school districts work together for the good of the children.
Natasha is a believer that you have to find humor in adversity. Armed with a sense of humor and conflict resolution skills, Natasha is ready to support parents navigating the special education maze. She has been with SLA since 2008. Back then Natasha was one of the first graduates of the course in advocacy training provided by the Council of Parents Attorneys and Advocates in 2007.
