Berny GarciaCustomized 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®, so I know first-hand that the Special Education and IEP processes can be challenging, confusing, and overwhelming. Is your child’s IEP team working on taking your child’s education further? Do you know how to tell? That’s where I come in! I am here to guide you in your journey through the Special Education profess and enrich your knowledge of the IEP document, which 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.
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. Every child is unique, and so are their needs – an IEP should reflect that. 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 help families navigate the special education process in both English and Spanish. Let’s get started!
HOW I SUPPORT YOU
Every family is special, and so are the moments they share. Let’s work together to make your child’s education special too. I’ll help you fully understand your child’s IEP, improve communication with your IEP team, and better advocate for your child via:
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.
