Simple and Motivating

I’m only to episode 7 in this podcast, but each episode leaves me with something to cling to that pushes me in a forward direction as a special education teacher. I want my team to listen to Catherine. I want my parents to listen. I want general education teachers and therapists to listen. This is for anyone and everyone at the IEP table. Thanks, Catherine!
