Help For Your Child

We provide help for children who are facing barriers to receiving educational supports and services to which they are legally entitled.  Our priorities are children with disabilities, homeless children, children who have been expelled or suspended from school, and children traumatized by exposure to family violence or other adverse experiences.

We can give you advice over the phone and referrals for further advocacy or services. If you would like to learn more about the regulations governing special education rights for children, please refer to the links below:

In some instances for low-income families, we may be able to provide representation from our staff or referral to a pro-bono attorney or advocate.  Please call 617-357-8431 x224 and leave a message for our intake coordinator or you can send us an email.

Helping Children Learn

For over 40 years, MAC has responded to the needs of children who are vulnerable because of poverty, race, limited English or disability and does not intend to stop. With education reform continuing to occupy a high priority on the state’s policy agenda, and with the severe economic crisis facing Massachusetts families, MAC is needed now, more than ever.
