As a member of a child's Individualized Education Program (IEP) team we must always focus on the individual and work cooperatively to write an IEP that meets the unique needs of the child while preparing that individual for further education, employment, and independent living...whatever that may look like.

In my lifetime I've met many parents, caregivers, and teachers who were overwhelmed by the IEP process, document, and meetings. Many have shared with me their feelings of confusion, frustration, overwhelm, and loneliness.

My mission is to partner with parents, caregivers, teachers, therapists, and school districts to reduce or remove these feelings in understanding Special Education, the IEP document and process, and to find common ground to enhance the education of children with special needs.

I am a certified special education teacher and have been a special educator for 30 years. I have attended several Wrightslaw conferences, completed the Master IEP Coach® Mentorship and am a member of the Master IEP Coach® Network. I've worked in the United States and England. During my career I developed my own behavior modification system that worked with hundreds of students.

I am the author of Those Who "Can't..." Teach: True Stories of Special Needs Families to Promote Acceptance, Inclusion, and Empathy. The goal of this book is to tell the stories that needed to be told in a way that would change the reader's perspective of special education. Teachers have told me they wished they would have this book sooner and that it is a must read for all teachers because it is changing they way they teach and respond to their students and their families.

I am also host of #nolimits. A show on which I interview people who society has placed limits upon but who have busted through those limits. This show can be found on my Facebook page or YouTube.

Lastly, I co-host Friday with Fran. A show on which we talk about all sorts of topics related to special education. I bring the perspective of an educator and coach, Fran brings the perspective of a parent and an individual with disabilities. This can also be found on Facebook or YouTube.
