Master IEP Coach Mentorship®

A note from Catherine Whitcher, M.Ed

Enrollment is Open for Summer 2020!

Summer is the Perfect Time to Prep for the Best School Year Ever!

Dear Special Needs Parents, Teachers & Therapists,

For the past 23 years I have been sitting at IEP tables coaching parents and teams how to find solutions to create meaningful education plans for all children.  I've been securing tens of thousands of dollars of services every year for students and you can help!  No matter what time of year it is, my voicemail is FULL. I have a waiting list 6 months long.  Bottom line... we NEED more Master IEP Coaches! 

Special Needs Parents in your community need help navigating the IEP process.This does not mean that you need to know the answers to everything, but you do need to know how to find the answers when they are needed. 

During our Master IEP Coach Mentorship, here are just a FEW things I will teach you:

  • How to prep parents for IEP meetings
  • How to help parents get what their child needs with less conflict
  • How to help both parents AND teachers keep the child's needs first without fighting the school district
  • How to create special education training programs in your local community!

In addition, you are going to learn how to GET PAID for your time and expertise!

You don't need a degree to be a Master IEP Coach, but you do need to be skilled in what you do. If you do your job right, as a Master IEP Coach, you will save parents hours and hours of time and a significant amount of money.  You can even help teachers, therapists and team members discover special education solutions that they've never seen before! Your goal as a Master IEP Coach is to walk parents & team members through the IEP process and help them feel confident in their role on the IEP team.

During our Master IEP Coach Mentorship, I will also teach you "all the things" you need for a successful business, including:

  • How to find clients. Special needs parents and special education teams are actually looking for you!
  • How to be the expert in your community
  • How to get teachers & admin to actually WANT you at their meetings. They might even ask you to come to the school to help their teachers. Seriously!
  • How to set your fees for 1:1 clients & workshops
  • How to determine what type of clients you can help best
  • How to use social media & community events to build your client list

I'm holding nothing back... In fact, I'm even going to give you the EXACT checklists and tools you need to start talking with parents and showing your expertise.  By the end of your mentorship you will have 7 tools that you can start using immediately to HELP FAMILIES!

Become a Master IEP Coach Mentorship Schedule:

  • We will begin on June 22nd and work together, LIVE ONLINE for 5 weeks!
  • EVERY WEEK I will teach you BOTH IEP & BUSINESS Strategies
  • Receive up to 5 hours of mentoring each week, but you can go at your own pace 
  • All Lessons will be recorded so you can watch again & again
  • At the end of the mentorship you will have the opportunity to continue to be mentored in an ongoing monthly group with fellow Master IEP Coaches who have completed the mentorship

My email inbox is overflowing with parents who need help looking through their child's IEP. When you join me for this mentorship starting on June 22nd, 2020, you will be prepared to start taking your own IEP Help phone calls from parents & special needs organizations in July! This is perfect timing for you to get the tools and critical information you need to help parents and IEP team members decide if the school year will be successful, if students are set up to make progress and teach others how they tackle their IEP concerns as a team before the school year even begins. Most importantly, you'll be ready to help with IEP meetings and help parents & teams make tough decisions on placement, supports & goals, which are the most stressful for everyone at the IEP table.

Let's work together and change our community, one IEP at a time.

I'm beyond excited to help you help families who need this support!

With Hope & Determination Always,

Catherine Whitcher, M.Ed

Angela West Brown
Master IEP Coach®

"Just left an IEP meeting. It was awesome to be in a room with a team who was willing to see the positive. When I was leaving, the Special Education Director pulled me aside to ask how we could collaborate more. She said she's never worked with some one who could support parents and be so willing to collaborate. She thanked me and when I got to my car I cried. Being a Master IEP Coach is exactly where I'm supposed to be."
