Consultations

Are you ready to:

  • See your child begin to communicate better and see them learning and following directions at school?
  • Know what it’s like to watch your child began making friends and learning the social skills they need to interact with their peers?
  • Hear the joy in your child as they begin to enjoy school, and develop strong self-esteem?
  • Watch your child begin to take ownership of their school responsibilities and have the motivation to do their homework independently?

Are you ready to step forward and feel empowered, knowledgeable, and successful at your child’s IEP meetings instead of feeling outnumbered, frustrated, and hopeless?

A consultation with Valerie will provide you a step-by-step overview of your child’s current IEP.  Valerie will help you interpret your child’s Present Levels of Performance, (PLOP), and point out the areas of need that are not being addressed.   Valerie will give you the information you need to be successful in having the district address your concerns and requests promptly.  Most importantly, Valerie will give you the tools you need to appeal the districts denials and excuses, and you will finally see the results you have been looking for!  It is possible to see the district work collaboratively with you as an equal member of the IEP team.
