A Note from Catherine Whitcher, M.Ed

Master IEP Coach Mentorship, Founder

Enrollment for Fall 2019 is OPEN!

We Start October 14th! Get Ready to Become the Master IEP Coach Your Community Needs

Dear Special Needs Parents, Teachers & Therapists,

For the past 21 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 write parent advocacy letters without fighting the school
  • How to know when you should be at a meeting and when you shouldn't

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

You don't need a degree to be an 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.  Your goal as a Master IEP Coach is to walk parents through the IEP process and help them feel confident in being an equal member of 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
  • How to be the expert in your community
  • How to get teachers & admin to actually WANT you at their meetings
  • How to decide what to charge
  • How to determine when you should and should not take on a new client 
  • 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 October 14th and work together, LIVE ONLINE for 8 weeks!
  • EVERY WEEK I will teach you BOTH IEP & BUSINESS Strategies
  • Receive up to 3 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 October 14th, 2019, you will be prepared to start taking your own calls in November! This is perfect timing for you to get the tools and critical information you need to help parents decide if the school year has been successful, is their child making progress and how do they tackle their parent concerns with the team before the school slips away. Most importantly, you'll be ready to help with IEP meetings and help parents make tough decisions on placement, supports & goals, which are the most stressful for parents and teams.

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

IEP Coach

"Before signing up I didn't know if this was for me. But what I did know is that private therapy, advocating for my son, helping others, spreading awareness, aiding others when in a time of need was all that I had a passion for. So I knew that being lead by a great teacher is exactly what I needed to make this passion come to life. I am excited to be on this adventure but profoundly grateful to be lead by a leader Catherine Whitcher that I have such trust in with my whole . I knew when I first met her that she was one I wanted to be like. Great information, full of great ideas, but done it in a way where the IEP team can still work together, but at the same time get important things done. I enjoy being fueled by Catherine with knowledge! Knowledge is Power!"
