Berny GarciaHelp and Support with IEPs and Special Education for Parents In English and Spanish
My name is Berny Garcia (yes, just Berny), I am a special needs mama, and a Master IEP Coach®. I am here to help support you in your journey through the Special Education process and to gain knowledge on the IEP document. You might have some questions like what is an IEP? What is a Master IEP Coach®? An Individual Education Plan (IEP) is designed to help children with disabilities and special needs receive the tailored education they deserve while preparing them for further education, employment, and independent living. A Master IEP Coach® is resourceful and creative in addressing your child’s individual needs to determine if something is missing from their IEP. As a bilingual consultant and coach, I can help families navigate the special education process and journey in both English and Spanish.
Every child is unique, and so are their needs – an IEP should reflect that. Every family is special, and so are the moments they share. Let us make your child’s education special too. As a special needs mom I know first-hand that the special education and IEP process can be challenging, confusing, and overwhelming. Your child’s IEP should be designed to prepare them for further education, employment, and independent living. Is your child’s IEP team working on taking your child’s education further?
I’d like to help you better understand your child’s IEP, improve communication with your IEP team, share tips and inspiration. Your child has a right to a free and appropriate education with a tailored plan. Remember, what is appropriate for one child may not be appropriate for yours. Please bear in mind that I am not a lawyer and I am not here to give you legal advice so I won’t refer to the law that much.
I’m located in the beautiful Bay Area, the East Bay to be exact and plan on hosting Coffee Talks once a month at local coffee shops to talk about IEPs and special education. Make sure to follow me on Facebook to know when and where I’ll be hosting Coffee Talks. https://www.facebook.com/bernyrg
