What I Do


I help parents of special needs children, who struggle with social, emotional or behavioral delays at school to navigate special education through parent education and increased confidence. Families who work with me are experiencing more positive and collaborative meetings resulting in more effective and efficient IEP’s or 504’s.

My Philosophy

No parent should sit in an IEP meeting and feel unsure of what is being decided for their child. I help bridge the gap to create a more cohesive IEP team and a better outcome for your child. 

My Methods

I do things a little differently around here. My role as a special education strategist is to educate you so that you walk into your next meeting feeling confident and prepared. You are the most consistent IEP or 504 team member and will be the only team member who supports your child throughout their entire journey. 

During IEP or 504 meetings I work with you and the rest of the team to foster positive relationships and keep the meeting student focused. 

My Goals

My goal is that parents feel confident in what they know about their child, prepared to ask for hard things and comfortable with the plan put into place.

My goal is that by digging in deep to each IEP and 504 with parents goals and concerns in mind, together we can create an effective and efficient support system so that your child reaches goals and makes progress faster than ever.

IEP Check up and Review

 I am available to review your childs current IEP or 504. This review includes a FREE consultation where we can discuss your goals for your child. After our consultation I will review the IEP and make suggestions to help your child reach those goals.  You get a second opinion on your child's health, why is education any different..

How to Write your Parent Input Statement

One of THE most important parts of your child’s IEP is the parent input statement and SO many times it is left blank in the IEP.

Use this template to create a parent input statement that really draws a picture of who your child is, where they are at and where you want them to go.

IEP vs 504 What's the Deal?

I am often asked “which is better a 504 Plan or an IEP?”  My answer always starts with “it depends.” 

It’s a hard question to answer, because they both serve different purposes and have their own strengths depending on your child.

Both are detailed plans, created by the school and parents, to outline how a student with a disability will learn. A 504 Plan and an IEP are both intended to protect a student with a disability to ensure that they are learning in the least restrictive environment.

What’s better really depends on your child and their unique needs. Watch this free video to get a better understanding of what the differences are and which option may better support your child.
