Your Third-Party Advocate for Reasonable Accommodations
Our company was established to help individuals with learning disabilities obtain accommodations that they are eligible to receive in order to be successful in an academic setting.
At Set for Success, we believe in establishing a strong foundation to enable people to become more confident, productive and successful in their goals for life. "Opportunities don't happen. You create them."
We focus on advocating for students to receive reasonable classroom and testing accommodations. Additionally, we focus on testing for high school students (ex: PSAT, ACT, SAT, and AP), graduate testing (ex: GRE, LSAT, and MCAT), and certification testing (ex: CPA, Real-estate, and Financial Planner). Furthermore, we also help high school and college students applying for accommodations. Examples include: (1) reasonable time allotment for tests, (2) writing scribes, (3) grammar / spell checking, (4) readers, (5) a quiet space for testing, and other accommodations as needed.
As an individual with dyslexia, Michael knows first-hand the difficulties of qualifying for accommodations and the tediousness of having to fill out the appropriate paperwork. He grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, and graduated as valedictorian from Hill High School, a school for students with learning disabilities. In 2012 He graduated from Baylor University with a BBA in Accounting. He went on to graduate from the University of Oklahoma College of Law with a Juris Doctorate in 2015, and is currently a licensed attorney in the State of Colorado. However, none of this would have been possible if he didn’t have someone in his corner. Fortunately, his father is an attorney and knew his rights. None of his successes would have been possible had it not been for persistence and knowledge of his rights.
Melanie is a Colorado native who graduated from Fort Lewis College with a Bachelor’s of Science in Environmental Biology in 2014. In addition to participating in international biological field studies, she has been involved in youth development and adaptive education models through agencies such as The National Park Service and the Mile High Youth Corps. In these roles, she has observed firsthand how curriculum and presentation affects the way someone learns. It is not a surprise for her to find herself working as an advocate for students in need. It is her combined experience with education and outdoor research that makes her a dynamic ally.
We want to be the ally in your corner to get you Set For Success.
