A special education coach journeys with you through your child’s education providing insight and creative solutions to challenges at school and home. A coach supports parents in becoming the greatest advocate for their child by building collaborative relationships with the IEP team to create a truly unique plan that works!
Coaching includes review of all paperwork, clarification of paperwork, and the development of an action plan. We would then collaboratively take steps to implement the action plan for your child. Coaching is about you and your child. Wherever you are, that is where we start. Some examples of collaborative work include-developing a parent input statement for an IEP, ghost writing letters to the IEP team about concerns/needs of the child, educating parents in their rights and role at the IEP table, developing creative solutions for challenges faced at home or school.
Parents of children with an IEP, 504, in the evaluation process, or struggling at school. Parents struggling to have a voice at the IEP table. Parents struggling with a transition (or simply gearing up for a transition and would like a better outcome than the past).
