ENROLLMENT IS OPEN
Special Education Parents and Teachers...
As a Master IEP Coach®, you will save parents and teachers from sleepless nights and wasted money trying to figure out Special Education all by themselves.
You'll be guiding parents and IEP teams to discover special education solutions they've never seen before.
I know firsthand, after helping IEP teams through thousands of IEP meetings, there are tens of thousands of dollars worth of education being left on the table every day because parents struggle with what to ask for and how to get to a YES from the district without fighting.
No matter what time of year it is, my inbox is overflowing with parents who are tired of playing games in Special Education.
They're done feeling defeated after every IEP meeting and want to finally walk out of the room with their head held high knowing in their gut they just built an awesome IEP for their child.
This is where you step in as a Master IEP Coach®!
Parents are googling and searching Facebook groups right this very second trying to figure out what to do with their child's IEP. You could be their answer.
I know you've got big dreams to change special education while working from home!
Everything you see on this page I've used myself for decades, but nobody showed me how. I had to build these tools from scratch and figure out how to support my family as a single mom, all by myself.
I don't want you to go through the same struggles I went through.
You can be prepared to get your own phone calls and texts from parents who need IEP help, in just a few weeks!
Let's work together and change Special Education, one IEP at a time.
With Hope & Determination Always,

I'm Catherine and I'm obsessed with helping you help families through the IEP process. COLLABORATIVELY.
Growing up, I listened to my mom spend hours on the phone arguing with my brother's school. He has Down syndrome and needed more support than the school was initially willing to give.
I didn't want other parents to go through what my mom went through, so I became a Special Education teacher. I thought I'd solve all the Special Education problems from the inside of my classroom.
But, I found myself teaching by day and coaching families on how to navigate the IEP system by night. I soon left the classroom and started my 25 year career of working solo to help families through the IEP process.
I'm not going to lie. It was hard. I was a single mom, sole financial provider, and I have a heart that just wanted to fix IEPs for families.
In 2016, I founded the Master IEP Coach® programs so you don't have to go through the same struggles of wanting to help families through the IEP process, while caring for your own family, too.
I've helped hundreds of parents and teachers become Master IEP Coaches® and I truly hope you let me help you, too.
Families are looking for you.
