Dot French fought the battle against breast cancer in 2002 and won. Dorothy French, Senior Advocate, Executive Director and Founder of Education-A-Must, was trained as an Advocate through the Federation for Children with Special Needs and has also received training in Professional Coaching. She is a member of COPAA (Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates) and IDA, (International Dyslexia Society).

Dot struggled with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and Dyslexia as a child. She also has a son with ADHD, Learning Disabilities, and Speech and Language Disabilities. Because of her valiant efforts as the parent of a son with ADHD and other learning disabilities over the past twenty years, Dot French has gained both the experience and the empathy necessary to be an effective advocate for not only her own child, but also for the children of over 900 families since Education-A-Must, Inc. was founded in 1996.

In 2001, Dot received the Jefferson Award from the American Institute of Public Service for her outstanding contribution to the New Hampshire community. In 2004, Dot received the Richard S. Lockhart Memorial Award from the Greater Seacoast United Way for her extraordinary contributions to improve the quality of life on New Hampshire's Seacoast.
