How can I empower you?

If you have questions about your child's education and need support in understanding your child's IEP or 504 plan, I give practical, culturally competent, and effective input to help support your child. The special education process can be overwhelming, frustrating, and difficult to understand, and I am here to support you! Knowledge is power and it is important to learn more about your child’s unique needs.  Parent advocacy, training, and consultations are geared towards arming parents with knowledge and tools to help support the academic needs, mental health, and wellness of their children. You are not alone in connecting the dots to your child's education.

A note from the owner

I am well versed in special education laws and understand the ins and outs of the special education process. Having worked with both schools and with parents, I understand how teamwork and collaboration amongst stakeholders are extremely important to a child's success.
