I call it “relentless optimism.”  It is an attitude that serves me well in IEP meeting after IEP meeting. In today’s episode I will share with you how this one simple mindset shift can make a huge difference in your advocacy. This tip has never been as important with teachers completely exhausted and overworked. You must BELIEVE that everyone on the table wants to help. You must BELIEVE that solutions exist and that people want to find them.  You must BELIEVE that there’s a better way.  You must BELIEVE that you’ll reach an agreement.  We’re talking Ted Lasso stuff!  Too good to be try?  Give a listen, and I’ll convince you it’s not.

Calling all parents, teachers, school staff, self advocates, disability organization staff, doctors, therapists, coaches, tutors, grandparents, babysitters, community organization staff, volunteers, … Calling anyone that supports a student with a disability!!!


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!
