Frequently Asked Questions
What is an IEP Coach?
An IEP coach is an advocate and guide for families going through the special education process with their child. An IEP coach can be an invaluable asset to a family. Usually, a coach will provide families with expert consultation and continue to be an empowering voice for the children.
Is IEP coaching the same as using an Advocate?
No, Advocates represent you and your child at a meeting. My goal is to help you learn the skills so that you can represent your child’s needs. Advocates help resolve disputes and IEP Coaching tries to prevent disputes by teaching families how to communicate and participate in the special education process.
How can a special education coach help?
An IEP coach can open communication between special education schools and families. They’re an asset before, during, and after meetings with schools. A coach can also guide families through a variety of problems that arise when navigating the special education process.
An IEP coach is there to support the children and family during the IEP (Individualized Education Program) process. They can give advice, ideas, and be a helpful medium between families and schools.
As part of the support network of the family, an IEP coach is wholly focused on the development and growth of the child in their academics, behaviors, social-emotional and adaptive skills. I want to ensure that your child’s special education IEP team is working hard to support the needs of the young learner.
When should a family use IEP Coaching Services?
Anytime families feel they do not have the knowledge or skills to participate in their child’s IEP process.
Why is this important?
Investing in your child’s education is an investment in their future. Children need appropriate goals to make progress in school. Special education services have to match the child’s needs. My IEP Coaching Service helps families find the appropriate goals and services to meet their child’s needs.
What are Wishtree Consultants, LLC. goals for parents and families?
I want families to be equal partners in their child’s education. By helping build long term skills:
- Families and self-advocates will build their knowledge and skills to participate in the IEP process
- Families will be able to use their knowledge and skills in their IEP and service planning meetings
- Families will understand the range of service/program options in their schools, their community and in New Hampshire.
