    Transition Triggers You Need for Special Education Crisis Schooling

    Transition Triggers You Need for Special Education Crisis Schooling

    Triggers. We usually think of the word "trigger" as a negative. We get triggered and the result is anger or meltdowns. Especially when we are discussing Special Education, behavior plans and supporting a child in a successful school day.

    Today, we're going to reframe the word "trigger" into a good thing. Something that you need. An action your child might be craving because it will help this new confusing world feel just a little bit easier.

Courtney Burnett, SLPA ,

Thank you!

Thank you for always thinking outside the box! You provide real-life tips that allow me to be the best mom possible for my daughter! Building a great IEP team that genuinely works together feels like a dream.

I also took the Master IEP Coach Couse and absolutely loved ❤️ it. Best investment ever!

We got to do better

This is a great podcast. In listening to this episode, Catherine hits the nail on the head! As a special needs sibling, special needs parent and a behavior analyst we have to work together to create a better education for the child. Yes, the federal law gives a minimum, but we all should want better. And to start doing that we, the team has to create opportunities. Get the child involved. Sometimes we forget they too have a voice. Being collaborative, solution focused and assertive can evoke positive change. Thank you Catherine for saying this out loud for everyone to hear!!
