Behavior Is Communication

About Me

I provide virtual support and coaching to teachers to build effective IEPs, Individual Education Plans,  with parent partnerships to prepare students for future employment, further education, and independent living.   

I love sharing my knowledge with others and making sure all children no matter their economic status is prepared to go after the goals, that they have set out for themselves. What puts a smile on my face every day is when I see students making the connection between school and life and self-advocating for themselves.

It is no more I do not know . . . .

It is I learn best by. . . .   

I need this to be successful, because . . . 

I am overjoyed when I can communicate the success with parents, and build upon the partnership we have built to assist their child to make connections with the real-world and have less conflict and more collaboration with others.

What I Do

IEP Coaching

One on One IEP coaching service that can be purchased per hour or in a package of 4 hours. The consultation services can be used all at once or over a school year. Coaching hours must be used within 12 months of purchase. The consultation services are designed to meet the needs of your family and situation.

IEP Review

Maybe you’re prepping for an IEP meeting or you just have a gut feeling that you might be missing something.  I will personally look over your child’s/student’s  IEP, identify areas of improvement, double-check how things are documented and give you recommendations and an action plan. 

IEP Input Statement

Individual support writing your input statement and advocacy letter, so your child can receive what they need to be successful. You can go into your child’s educational meeting knowing your thoughts and ideas are clear, concise and put into a statement that can be added to the IEP, and that’s peace of mind.
