Takeaways: Join me as I talk with my husband about the Who, What, When, Where, How and Why of the IEP Meeting

IEP Meetings can be intimidating.  This episode takes the stress out by bringing basic, easily laid out information on what the meetings are, who attends them, why they occur, when they occur, where they are, and how they are scheduled.  Sometimes the meeting is the most intimidating part of advocating for a child with a special education plan.  My husband , Brandon, joins me in this episode as we reflect back on our journey as parents in special education thus far.  He provides information as a parent that’s been at the table.

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!
