Hi, I'm Catherine 

and I'm completely obsessed with digging into special education solutions with parents, teachers and IEP teams everyday.

I grew up as a special needs sibling, my brother has Down syndrome. I see the IEP table from the perspective of the family.

I became a special education teacher, determined to change the world from the inside of my classroom. I see the IEP table from the perspective of the school team.

For 25+ years I've been working for both parents and teachers, helping EVERYONE work together to create IEPs with less stress and more results.

I've consulted with parents + IEP teams through hundreds (probably thousands, I stopped counting after the first decade) of IEP meetings since 1996. I've seen what is possible for a child's future when we design a child's IEP for the real world and I can teach you how to make it happen!


It's time to take your next step in Special Education, let's do this together!
