Carolina Corrigan, a special education parent advocate in Connecticut, is the founder of Advocate with Knowledge, LLC, which provides advice and support to families during the PPT process. She began her special education journey over a decade ago when her daughter was diagnosed with Autism
at age three. Since then, Carolina has devoted her time and efforts to supporting families and children with disabilities.
As a longstanding member and Chairperson of the Parent Advisory Board for Special Services and Section 504, in Wilton Public Schools (Wilton PAB), Carolina has worked collaboratively with parents, school faculty and administrators to address special education issues. Her training and experience as a mediator— along with understanding and patience gleaned from parenting three children, including one with disabilities— has given Carolina a unique perspective on special education advocacy. She recognizes the importance of school teams and parents working together to educate children, and she has dedicated her work to facilitating these partnerships.
Carolina received a BA in Legal Business Administration from Sacred Heart University and a Mediation Certification from Quinnipiac Law School. She resides in Wilton with her husband, her three daughters and her two dogs. Outside of advocating for families, she enjoys reading, playing tennis and paddle tennis.
