The Parallels Between SPED Advocacy and Real Life

Tune In: Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Google Podcast


Special education advocacy, while often stressful and complicated, is really akin to so many experiences in other areas of life.  Somehow, though, because IEP team members, including parents, often feel overwhelmed by the content, and – frankly- because we’re all there to advocate for a child that has a disability, emotions run high at meetings, and the adults often feel overwhelmed.  We did a long project over the weekend, and at some point, I was lying in a pile of dirt and thought, “This project is an analogy for the special education process.”  Tune in to today’s episode for some musings on the parallels between SPED advocacy and real life.  There’s even a pep talk at the end!
