We are the Idea Bringers, Solution Finders, and Team Builders at the IEP Table

We've sat at thousands of IEP tables, covered in coffee cups and laptops, helping parents and teachers build IEPs that work in the real world.

Our founder, Catherine, has been guiding teams for 25 years to think outside the box and get rid of old habits at the IEP table.

There are tens of thousands of dollars worth of education being left on the table every day because parents and teachers struggle with what to ask for and how to get to a YES from the district.

Our inboxes and DMs are overflowing with parents and teachers who are tired of playing games in Special Education.

They're done feeling defeated after every IEP meeting and want to finally walk out of the room with their head held high knowing in their gut they just built an awesome IEP for a child who needs to start making real progress at school.

This is where you step in as a Master IEP Coach®!

 

Can you imagine...

  • Parents are googling right this very second trying to figure out what to do with their child's IEP. You could be their answer.
  • Teachers & IEP Teams are filling up sticky notes & lesson plan books to problem solve IEP disasters waiting to happen. You could have the roadmap to help them with the toughest decisions they've ever had to make.
  • While you're digging into fixing IEPs, you could also step out as a Master IEP Coach® and get paid for your expertise.

As a Master IEP Coach®, you will save parents hours of time and tons of money.

You'll be guiding teachers, therapists, and teams to discover special education solutions they've never seen before.

Master IEP Coaches spark teachers & teams to shut their laptop lids and lean into creating more than just an IEP document.

You'll be the go-getter who knows how to build an educational experience that students and parents treasure.

I know you've got big dreams to change Special Education for yourself and for others!
If you sit at an IEP table,

YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE.

By the end of your mentorship, you will have access to dozens of Master IEP Coach Methods® that you can start using immediately to HELP FAMILIES and SCHOOLS!

You will be prepared to start taking your own IEP Help phone calls from parents, schools & disability organizations in just a few weeks!

As a Master IEP Coach®, you could be the difference for a child experiencing this school year as a sweet success or a trip on the struggle bus.

Let's work together and change Special Education, one IEP at a time.

When you become a Master IEP Coach®...
YOU GO FROM THIS:
TO THIS:

Choosing old school IEP goals and the 1980's version of Special Education.
Designing IEPs that truly prepare a child for further education, employment, and independent living.

Change Confusion and Conflict at the IEP table, with delay after delay.
to Securing Critical Supports and services quickly without drama.

So, what is the Master IEP Coach® Mentorship?

The Master IEP Coach® Mentorship is a self-paced, 5 module learning experience that teaches IEP strategies that you can't google. The mentorship is a virtual, hands-on, program that helps parents, teachers, admins, and therapists nail the IEP process with confidence. You'll even have an entire community of Master IEP Coaches® cheering you on!

By the end of the Master IEP Coach® Mentorship, you’ll…

  • Become a leader at the IEP table in your current role. Whether you're a parent, teacher, or other professional at the IEP table. You're going to shine!
  • Stop second guessing if you're doing this IEP thing "right" and gain the proven strategies we know have worked for decades!
  • Know how to start creating income as a Master IEP Coach®, in your community and online. Building your website, working with families and schools, becoming a speaker... it's all here!

No more worrying and wasted time figuring out IEP answers by yourself!

Here's how the mentorship breaks down...
MODULE ONE

Beyond IEP Basics

It's time to go beyond the internet searches and bad advice in Facebook groups and see what strategies really work in the trenches every day when you are a Master IEP Coach®.

In module one, you’re going to learn:

  • IEP Checkpoints that nobody ever told you about before. If you don't cross these off your IEP list, you're missing opportunities to help a child succeed!
  • Build your IEP Success Path with IEP letter writing templates that will save both parents and teachers a ton of time in OFFICIALLY documenting a child's needs. We all know if it's not in writing, it didn't happen!
  • How to finally get a YES at the IEP table for the services and supports a child need's most without needing 5 hour IEP meetings.
  • Decide how you will use your IEP experience and new skills as Master IEP Coach® both in your current role at the IEP table and as an IEP expert in your community!
MODULE TWO

Leadership + Inclusion

Trying to create change in Special Education can feel like walking through mud. Step up your leadership skills and watch parents and teachers start seeking you out for IEP solutions that work in the real world!

In module two, you’re going to learn:

  • Exactly what you need to do before, during, and after the IEP meeting so you can sleep soundly at night knowing you did everything right.
  • How to recognize a red flag before it becomes a burning fire that takes the entire IEP team off track.
  • To build a truly inclusive classroom and school community for each individual child because plopping a child in art, music, and P.E. is simply not an inclusion plan. 
  • Learn all the tools it takes to build income and influence as a Master IEP Coach®. Websites, social media, and so much more!
MODULE THREE

Old School vs New School Thinking

Ever feel like the IEP process is like trying to connect your new iPhone charger to a boom box? The two simply just don't go together. The world has changed and now we need to upgrade our IEP writing from the inside out.

In module three, you’re going to learn:

  • IEP goal writing for the Real World. IEPs aren't about just following the curriculum. We've got so much more to conquer than counting pennies!
  • Strength-based IEP writing to help every child show off their awesomeness while reaching the next milestone.
  • Decision making with confidence from service minutes to placements, you can do this!
  • How to turn your free IEP advice that you're giving out on Facebook into paid work that makes you the IEP expert in your community.
MODULE FOUR

Troubleshooting + Parent Input

Ever walk out of an IEP meeting and think... what did we just accomplish? You're frustrated you didn't get to all the talking points and you know there's going to need to be another meeting sooner than later. You can prevent that from happening ever again as a Master IEP Coach®

In module four, you’re going to learn:

  • Parent Input + IEP Strategy Checklists to define the desired outcome of each and every IEP meeting. You'll cut your IEP meeting prep by 50%!
  • What to do when your District simply does NOT have the resources a child needs. 
  • How school staff, from the General Education classroom teachers to the Librarian, can truly can support a child beyond  their IEP.
  • Make your dreams to change Special Education come true. Want to become a speaker? Want to build an online course? Want to help families 1:1? Learn all the ways you can get paid as a Master IEP Coach® and get started immediately or wait till you're ready. You decide!
MODULE FIVE

LIVE Master IEP Coach® Training Sessions!

We want to meet you at the next online Master IEP Coach® Mentorship event!

  • Twice a year we have a COMPLETE online IEP Conference with Master IEP Coach® Experts and our founder, Catherine. You get full access!
  • Replays for every online event are available to you. In fact, you get to watch the last replays IMMEDIATELY when you enroll in the mentorship!

The Master IEP Coach® Mentorship is NOT...
a law class and we do not give legal advice.

IMPORTANT: I, Catherine Whitcher (founder of the Master IEP Coach® Mentorship), am not a lawyer and will not be giving legal advice. Neither I, nor the IEP experts inside of the Mentorship teach how to file state complaints or due process.

This mentorship will focus solely on strategies to support families and schools through the IEP process who are NOT in critical situations.

This mentorship is ONLY right for you if you are looking to be a ridiculously awesome leader of the IEP process through positive interactions, creating appropriate paper trails, and knowing what surprising questions you need to ask + solutions you need to find to help a child go farther than anyone ever thought possible.

The entire Master IEP Coach® Mentorship is based on helping children receive an appropriate education to meet their unique needs, and to prepare them for further education, employment, and independent living... as stated in the purpose and findings of IDEA law, but if you're looking for all the legal jargon and you want to memorize all the legal cases to prove your point, becoming a Master IEP Coach® is not the path for you.

Catherine is special needs sibling to an awesome brother who has Down syndrome.

Catherine holds nothing back as she shows you how she has changed 1000's of IEPs without ever going to Due Process or filing State Complaints.
