Becky Harlan

Advocate, Fick Educational Services

My name is Rebecca “Becky” Harlan. My husband and I live in Downingtown and have been married for 25 years. We have two wonderful children that we adopted who both struggle with their own disabilities.

I have been an Educational Advocate for 13 years and love what I do. I work hard to give each of my clients a voice for their children and fight to get them what their child deserves to be successful at school and in their community. I started my career at The Arc of Chester County, but now work for Fick Educational Services in West Chester.

I also proudly serve my community as a school board director for the Coatesville School District and chair the Policy Committee. This is my second year of a four year term. I am strong advocate for children with special needs, as well as behavioral needs. It’s important to me to speak up for the voiceless and help create a better district for the kids here.

Becky is an OUTSTANDING advocate! Very much on our side and working to make our son successful. She is extremely knowledgeable and an expert in her field. Becky is my sanity to this mess with the school district. J. P.
