Special Education Consulting
IEP and 504 plan support for schools
As a special educational consultant, I specialize in 504 plan and IEP review/programming for schools. as well as advocacy for parents who need support in understanding their child's educational needs. I give practical, culturally competent and effective alternatives to teachers, parents, and administrators about differences in learning and behavior. I have a strong understanding of the diverse academic, socioeconomic and cultural needs of students with and without disabilities. Having worked with both schools and with parents, I understand how teamwork and collaboration amongst stakeholders are extremely important to a child's success. The goals of these services include: educating parents & schools on child development, disabilities, and compliant special education programming, assisting in the development of positive behavior and academic support plans using research-based data, and strengthening relationships between educators, parents and community services. While I am available to support schools in compliant programming, I am a passionate advocate for parents; as I know navigating the special education process can be difficult and intimidating for some.
