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. 

In today’s episode, you’ll get to know me a little more.  You’ll understand how I see things as a parent, a teacher, and a self-advocate.  You’ll understand my “why” and be the first to know about the roadmap for the first course series at Ashley Barlow Co.

I’m so glad you found us!  Grab a glass of lemonade, get cozy, and settle in to listen!

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!

Now Enrolling

The Special Education & Advocacy Lab is an on-line, on-demand training course for parents of children on special education that are interested in improving their advocacy at the IEP table. Each of the ten modules is a little under an hour, so in about 6.5 hours – less than one work day – or a few weeks’ time we go start to finish in Special Education Advocacy. We cover Parent Rights and the nuts and bolts of the IEP Meeting, the basics of the law, a deep dive into the IEP document and goal writing, progress monitoring and specially designed instruction, due process, document organization, communication strategies and so much more! Each module is jam packed with content and collaborative, reasonable, objective advocacy tips.
