…because it is too much to do on your own!

Ingrid FloryAs parents of children with special needs, we are asked to do too much. Carting our kids around to doctor’s appointments and therapies. Following up with home-based therapies and supports. Assisting our kids with self-care well beyond the age of their typically developing peers.

And then we attend these meetings at school where we are expected to understand technical evaluations, digest that information emotionally and intellectually, come up with questions, and advocate for our child’s needs. All in approximately sixty minutes.

IT IS TOO MUCH. Which is why I am here to help.

Sitting at your side in meetings or consulting with you behind-the-scenes, I can help you to:

      • Understand your child’s evaluations
      • Prepare for meetings
      • Work with your team to develop a strong and measurable IEP for your child
      • Navigate the special education process
