and I'm completely obsessed with digging into special education solutions with parents, teachers and IEP teams everyday.
I grew up as a special needs sibling, my brother has Down syndrome. I see the IEP table from the perspective of the family.
I became a special education teacher, determined to change the world from the inside of my classroom. I see the IEP table from the perspective of the school team.
For 20+ years I've been working for both parents and teachers, helping EVERYONE work together to create IEPs with less stress and more results.
I've consulted with parents + IEP teams through hundreds (probably thousands, I stopped counting after the first decade) of IEP meetings since 1996. I've seen what is possible for a child's future when we design a child's IEP for the real world and I can teach you how to make it happen!
Special Education teams and special needs parents have historically had a disconnect in communication and collaboration when working together on IEPs. In the past, teachers and parents only had options for traditional teacher training programs, adversarial advocacy programs for parents, and a consistent focus on legal issues for providing appropriate educational services. Teachers and parents have not been encouraged to work together proactively to avoid crisis and prepare a child for long term success based on the child's unique needs.
