To The Point

This is great on-the-go podcast to gain a basic understanding of IEPs. They’re quick, to the point, and useful. Thanks Lisa for all that you do!

Love your attitude and knowledge is awesome

I have an IEP on Tuesday. My son is going into 1st great and I am very engaged with the school from day one. We live in a very small community so every meeting is critical and more knowledge is essential. I just started listening to your podcast today. I love you attitude, your knowledge, your frustration, the sound of your dogs claws and your honestly. Thank you for doing this. Keep it coming! I am frustrated every day and hear it in your voice in hard days. I truly appreciate you.

Keeping it Real!

I think this is another great podcasts that will help parents explore the Special Education process and IEP’s as well as a ton of information to support other parents and many different things our kids get excluded from. A MUST LISTEN!
