Hi, I'm Courtney!

I’m a disabilities advocate, IEP Coach, licensed Speech and Language Pathologist Assistant, and a mom of a child with disabilities.

What does that mean for you? I’m an expert who can help you navigate the complicated world of IEPs (and many more accommodations) while also understanding and making space for the emotional weight parenting a special needs child can carry.

Years ago, as I was preparing to become a mom, I got a phone call that changed my life forever and set me on a very different path than I was expecting. Becoming a parent to a child with disabilities has taught me so much and made me a better person. I’ve also been able to use my professional skills – as a licensed SLPA and IEP Coach – to help hundreds of other parents along the way.

It’s my mission to help special needs families understand their child’s rights and needs, ensure they’re getting the best and most effective accommodations, and rediscover the joy of raising their child. 

Maybe you’re looking for a little reassurance that you’re on the right path. 

Maybe you need some one-on-one help as you discover the world of IEPs, 504s, and AAC. Maybe you’re searching for a community of special needs parents to answer your questions, encourage you when things get tough, and celebrate when your child makes progress.  

You’ll find all of that (and more) right here, friend. 



P.S. Connect with me on social media for more tips and support.
