Hi!  Welcome!  First, take a deep breath.  I know that you’re feeling anxious, concerned and exhausted by the thought of supporting your special education students this school year.  This business has been in my heart for several years, and I’m so excited to share it with you soon.  There are 7.1 million children on IEPs in the United States, which means that there are so many parents, teachers, instructional assistants, doctors, therapists, disability organizations, and community support organizations that need information on special education law, advocacy, and best practices.  Whether you’re looking for basic special education advocacy training videos or really detailed information on a specific disability or best practice, you’ll find it here!  I’m even working hard on a specific course to help you through the unknowns of the 2020-2021 school year!  It’s going to be good, so have a seat, pour a cup of coffee, and know that I’ve got this.  It’ll be ready soon!!!

Part 04: THE 6W'S OF THE ASHLEY BARLOW CO - THE Where

Parents of a child in special education are exhausted. Teachers and school staff are about the busiest professionals in the workforce. Nobody has time for in-person trainings, and thanks to COVID-19, few can safely access in-person trainings right now!

Steal My Back To School Shopping List

Water Bottles and Flash cards and Granola Bars! Oh My!!! My kids went Back to School this week, which means it’s go time! You know I’m a planner, and if there’s one thing I love, it’s a fresh beginning. This time of year energizes me, forcing me to get organized and allowing the structure to get back on track with things like meal prepping. As I perused Amazon for everything we needed to start the year off right, I thought that I should share our list!
