share information – guide process – enhance communication
Your child needs an Individualized Education Program (IEP). Now what?
At Learning Essentials, IEP Coaching can inform and empower you to effectively advocate for your child. Our coaching services help you prepare for the IEP meeting, decode the language of special education, negotiate services, navigate conflicts, and create better outcomes.
“My daughter’s reading skills have shown wonderful improvement. Learning Essentials has made a huge difference in her life.”
“Thank you for the great work managing the tutoring process! (We) cannot thank you enough for the fantastic support and attention to detail! Our son has gained so much from tutoring with Learning Essentials.”
“Learning Essentials has been remarkable from the start—very professional. We love the one-on-one attention that our daughter receives. She enjoys attending tutoring and always seems to take away valuable information.”
“My son’s confidence and ability to apply what he is learning is really showing! A huge thank you to Learning Essentials and our tutor.”
Our goal is to keep the IEP process student-centered to best serve the educational needs of your child.
Our IEP coaching team will:
- Advise you of your parental rights
- Supply invaluable resources, including model IEP
- Educate you on the purpose of specific IEP sections
- Review records and assessment reports
- Propose educational goals and identify areas of concern
- Role-play effective ways to communicate with IEP team members
- Recommend attorneys, if needed
*Service hours are valid for one year from the booking date. Time may be allocated at your discretion.
NOTE: Coaching is between the parent and Wendy only. Service hours may be used for a pre-IEP meeting to review concerns/areas to address during IEP meeting and/or after an IEP meeting to review the proposed IEP prior to consenting. Included service time may also include advice regarding parts of the IEP or special education process, review of school or private assessments, review of any additional concerns, development of suggested action list for parents, or any other support needed by Wendy outside of attending the IEP meetings.
NOTE: IEP coaches cannot give legal advice, file complaints, or follow due process. If you need these services, we can direct you to an IEP Advocate. However, our goal is to help you avoid those issues by giving you the tools to create and keep a strategic, effective IEP team for your child!
