Pam Labellarte is the parent of three grown children, two of whom have a disability. Pam is currently in private practice. She has been providing Special Education Advocacy to individuals and their families in Lake, Cook, McHenry, Kane and DuPage Counties in Illinois and Walworth County and Kenosha County in Wisconsin for the past 16 years.
“I have experienced the challenges that my own children have faced due to their disabilities firsthand, and relished in their triumphs. So, I take my lead from their trials and successes into the work I do with the families who are facing similar and many times greater challenges. This provides me the energy and focus I need to be an effective advocate. Without the inspiration I receive from them every day I would not be able to possess the passion I have for the work I do."
