IEP Coaches

What is an IEP Coach?

IEP, FAPE, IDEA... what does it all mean???

Special education has it's own language; do you speak it?  If not, our Master IEP Coaches can help! They have completed The Master IEP Coach training with Catherine Whitcher, and speak special education fluently.  They believe that children get the best education possible when parents, teachers, and the rest of the IEP team speak the same language, and are here help you learn it!

IEP coaches cannot give legal advice, file complaints or due process.  If you need these services, we can direct you to an IEP Advocate.  However, our goal is to help you avoid those things by giving you the tools to create and keep a fabulous IEP team for your child!
