Kim met with our family, learned the issues and approached working with our school in a collaborative way that got the conversation started about a proper placement for our son. She seemed capable and professional yet caring about our situation.

Kim helped us with IEP goals at our meeting and helped us to prepare for our daughter's IEP meeting. We are looking into more inclusion time for our 2nd grader and she helped us to start that process. As a result we learned how to better understand how the system works for the future.

Every child deserves to learn, grow & mature to their potential. Every family deserves support.
Knowledge is Power
What we do.
Collaborate between School Districts and Families to help all children with disabilities reach their Educational and Functional potential year after year ages 3 – 18.
Support parents and schools by knowing the interpretation of the special education laws that support the individual child on an IEP or 504 plan or the child who is in need of a plan.
Bridge communication by interpreting legal terms and timelines to include:
Appropriate Education (annual review, 3 year re-evaluations, crisis management)
IEP (individual education program)
FAPE (free and appropriate public education)
LRE (least restrictive environment)
Due Process (parental rights) to request evaluations, team meetings, mediation, and hearings
We help parents educate themselves for a long road of respectful communication with their home school system; keeping focus on the TEAM effort of education for their child's needs.
