Tara Murphy is the mother to two children diagnosed with developmental disabilities. She has successfully secured effective therapies for them from medical insurance and appropriate educations from her school district. This includes multiple due process hearings. Six years of experience in advocating for her own children has made Tara want to fight for other children as well. Tara believes that advocating for children with disabilities should begin as early as possible in order to maximize their outcomes. Based in New Jersey, Tara is knowledgable about state practices and the IDEA, which applies to children in every state.
