Informed Empowered Parent Brigade


The Informed Empowered Parent Brigade is a group of “go get ’em” parents

who are unwilling to wait any longer to learn how to successfully advocate

for their child.


Join the Parent Brigade Today and learn how you can hold your local school district obligated to meet the legal
requirements for your child receive the support and services listed in the IEP for the 2020-2021 school year.

• Are you frustrated and angry that your child did not receive the academic instruction, supports, and services listed in the IEP during the spring when schools were closed?

• Would you like to avoid being responsible to become the teacher, service provider, and behavioralist without the skills, training, or support to meet the needs of your child?

• Do you know how to request compensatory education to make-up the services your child missed during the school closure?

• Would you like to receive step-by-step coaching with easy to use forms, logs, scripts, and fill in the blank letters to easily advocate for the program your child needs?

• Have you always wanted to learn more about how to become a stronger advocate but didn’t know where to start or didn’t have the finances to work with an advocate or an attorney?

The Parent Brigade is a place where dedicated parents are willing to invest in becoming an Informed Empowered Parent Advocate.


If you are a parent who is unsatisfied with the school district’s

failure to implement your child’s IEP through virtual schooling ~ you are in the right place!

Here’s just a fraction of what you’ll receive inside the IEP Brigade but there’s so much more…


  • Receive live personal coaching from Valerie and step-by-step advocacy support to overcome the district’s denials and misinformation


  • Learn how you can protect your child’s rights while schools are closed and be prepared for after they reopen.


  • Learn professional advocacy skills and set yourself up for success to have the district compensate for your child’s lost skills and the services the district is failing to provide because of the pandemic.


To serve all the parents who need help during this uncertain time,

I created the Parent Brigade at a price anyone can afford.
