AAC & The IEP
If you're ready to feel empowered about how your child's AAC device should be included in their IEP-You're in the right place.
My Kid Has an AAC Device – Now What?!
Congratulations on taking a major step toward increasing your child’s communication capabilities!
While powerful devices, AACs are relatively new and still very misunderstood (or not even known about!) in many educational settings.
My daughter started working with an AAC over 10 years ago, and since then, we’ve learned a lot about advocating for her, training her team, and making sure the device is actually being used.
Inside the AAC and The IEP Program, we will go step-by-step through everything you need to know about the best practices in documenting AAC in your child's IEP, understanding the history of special education in the united states, and how IDEA Law is designed to help you be an equal member of the IEP team.
You'll get access to the online library with the core lessons + thirty days of live coaching inside a private Facebook group.
Live coaching will include weekly lessons taught inside the private Facebook group and weekly Q & A.Sign Me Up!
Before You Sign Up for This Program...
Have you had any of these thoughts or concerns?
This device was $10,000! I don’t want to mess it up or let my kid break it!
How hard can this be? I’ll just figure it out on my own. There’s always YouTube…
My child’s support team should know what to do. I’ll just let them do it.
Adding the AAC to my child’s IEP is too overwhelming – I’ll just wait til next year.
The legal and IEP language is too confusing. I don’t even know where to start!
If any of these sound familiar – you’re not alone! I work with lots of parents who have these exact thoughts or concerns.
Here’s what I need you to know: Effective use of an AAC will significantly improve your child’s means of communication. For many children, it’s a life-changing device. We watched my daughter’s AAC work wonders for her – but it wasn’t easy, and we didn’t have anyone helping us figure it out.
You don’t have to do it all alone. So let me help speed you through years of experience and knowledge in one fantastic program designed with families in mind.Enroll in AAC & The IEP

Meet Your AAC Expert
Hi, I'm Courtney!
An IEP Coach, licensed SLPA, and mom of a child with disabilities. I know that you want the best for your child – which is why you invested in an AAC!
But then it felt overwhelming, expensive, confusing, and frustrating. Trust me, I’ve been there, too.
Your child has an incredible opportunity to expand their communication when an AAC is used effectively and consistently. But it’s a lot to figure out.
I’ve done all the work for you. Over the past 10 years, we’ve learned how to use these devices with our daughter. We know how to make them fun and engaging, and we’ve learned – through trial and error – how to train her team to use them, too.
I created this program because it’s exactly what I wish existed when I got my child’s first AAC. And I’m excited for you to learn and be empowered to get the most out of your child’s life-changing device!
