Helping elementary families with ADHD, learning disabilities, and sensory processing challenges create IEPs that work
As a parent, you want what's best for your child each and every day, but nobody at school seems to understand exactly what your child needs for a successful school day. You feel like the IEP team is talking in circles and there never seems to be a solution that works.

I can't wait to help you create the IEP that your child needs to thrive.

Every parent should have the opportunity to have this type of conversation about their child.”

"Before finding Jessica online, I was lost and hopeless with my child’s IEP Process. There was so much information. I felt frustrated, overwhelmed and confused with the process. I wasn’t getting anywhere or being heard. Jessica is an amazing and knowledgeable advocate. Jessica got to work right away and took the time to get to know my child and our unique situation to help my child get the education he deserves. She really cared about us and worked overtime to help us in the process. I’m so happy we have partnered with Successful Healthy Children. I know that no matter what happens I can count on Jessica to be a part of our team, she is an incredible IEP Coach!"

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).
