IEP Parent Academy
In a perfect world, your IEP team does all the explaining, but often enough, they aren’t special education parents and they can’t possibly understand how overwhelming it all is from your side of the IEP table. They sit in IEP meetings every single week, so it’s easy to skip over stuff that is just second nature to them. The IEP team is on a tight schedule and even when they don’t mean to, it can be easy to rush through parent questions just to get to the end. In the end, you are left feeling unsure and may be bombarded with information that you just don’t totally understand.
Gone are the days where you aren’t sure what to say or do at the IEP table.
Gone are the days that you feel blind-sided with the topics of discussion. There is no more I don’t know what is happening, I’m not sure what is next. Guys, I started this journey because I felt all of those things. I felt overwhelmed, bullied, pushed into a corner, blind sided, lost… and I am not alone. Neither are you.
As a special education parent, myself, I get it. I know how hard it is to decode all of the lingo, how confusing it can be to figure out what an annual goal should be, how they came to that goal, what service minutes are used for…. And how to know it’s all appropriate for your child. I know how emotionally drained you feel after a hard meeting.
If you’ve ever cried in the school parking lot, raised your voice in an IEP meeting, or felt BLINDSIDED by changes being made, the IEP Parent Academy was created with you in mind. Check out what these parents had to say about the course…
Nicole Schlechter is the mom of 4 and a former educator. After years of working in education, Nicole changed direction to support families like hers, through special education. She supports parents of special education children who struggle with social, emotional or behavioral delays at school and home to navigate special education and challenging behavior.
As an IEP Mom for years she has experienced firsthand the challenges that face parents every day when it comes to understanding their child’s needs in school and how to help them succeed socially, emotionally and academically.
Families who work with Nicole are experiencing more positive and collaborative meetings resulting in more effective and efficient IEP’s or 504’s. Her goal with IEP Parent Academy is to help parents become better advocates for their children.
