Are you ready to move past "I don't know what I don't know?"

Stop trusting the school team OR constantly fighting with the school and start advocating effectively for your child now!

The IEP 101 Parent Workbook will help you learn what you know, what you don't, and create your 30-day advocacy plan!


Schools don't always have your child's best interest in mind.

Only YOU have the power to advocate so they truly thrive at school!

Raise your hand if this sounds like you...

- You fear you are missing supports and services your child needs -- but you don't even know what to ask for!

- After trusting the school to do their job, your child isn't making progress on their goals and you feel like your child has lost time...and you don't know how to get back on track!

- You feel the school is hiding things from you and you don't know what you can do about it

- The school IEP team judges you and you feel intimidated by what you don't know and the confusing language and legal process

- You know there is a way to advocate where it's collaborative and not a fight all the time, but you don't know how to break the cycle of negativity and build trust with your team

I hear you, and I've been just as confused by the paperwork and process as you!

It doesn't have to be that way! Get the IEP 101 Parent Workbook so you know where to start to advocate for an effective IEP for your child!!

Stop wasting your child's learning time being unsupported and start your 30-day advocacy plan today!

Hey there, I'm Beth!

Hi, I'm Beth, and my goal is to help parents become effective advocates for their kids through insider knowledge of the IEP system and process!

When I was serving the schools as an occupational therapist, sitting in 400 IEP meetings under 20 different case managers, I started to realize that some parents knew how to inspire the school team to step up and truly support their child.

I started to notice themes of what knowledge those parents had, and how they approached IEP advocacy.

I now help parents just like you become effective IEP advocates for their child through insider knowledge of the IEP process and system and small but impactful tools that make a HUGE impact on the effectiveness of their child's IEP!

The IEP Lab was born to provide you with affortable information and systems to truly take the reins of your child's IEP.

No more feeling like you don't have any control over your child's IEP.

No more feeling like you are fighting all the time.

I've seen parents turn into amazing advocates for their child, and their joy is remarkable!

And you can become that same confident, knowledgable parent advocate for your child and get them an IEP that truly supports them and gets them learning!! Let's do this!!

Isn't it the school's job to create an IEP that works for my child? Why do I have to do this as a parent?

YES-it's supposed to be the school's job to fully support your child. HOWEVER, at the end of this workbook it is likely that you may even have more information than the school staff about IEP's (SO sad-but true!) You are the most committed to having an effective IEP for your child, so you must learn to advocate for them!
