Your help is needed so much. You have helped me understand my child’s IEP better and now I know what I need to do to advocate for my child. Thanks again!

I found beyondspecialeducation.com about 3 ½ years too late. I didn’t even dream I could have found the information Nicole has on her site anywhere back then. I spent literally half my time these years learning the things that she has readily available on her site and her consistent posts both on her website and Facebook. I could have spent that extra time enjoying my children than having to “re-invent the wheel” and avoided feeling so lonely while I went through that learning period. She has done such a service for all us parents and on top of that she answers questions freely and quickly, what a dream. Also, the assistance she offers at such a nominal rate is priceless. So glad you found this site and I refer parents to it often.

Nicole has been a much needed resource for parent advocates. She has given me important special education information that is laid out in simple terms, which helped me to become a better advocate.

If you are a parent of a child who has been diagnosed with some sort of difficulty that would lead to the development of an IEP, this book is definitely a useful and worthwhile guide, without a doubt.  There is a great deal here to appreciate as well for other audiences, as the author is clearly trying to bridge the gap between special needs educators and parents, a relationship that seems especially fraught with mistrust.

Are you the parents of a child with special needs? How do you know if your child is ready to be toilet trained? Have you ever wondered if you could build your own sensory room? Do you know what to add to your child’s “Sensory Box”? Need guidelines to select a summer camp for your child with special needs? Did you know you could implement a bullying prevention plan in your child’s IEP? Have you thought about what your child’s life plans are after graduation? These are but a few important topics covered in The Journey of Special Education!

The Journey of Special Education: Informational Post to Get You Through is a must read for any parent of a child with special needs, especially if they are new to the special education system. Nicole informs parents of all options and gives the pros and cons of each choice without telling you which to choose, allowing you to make your own informed decisions. If you are confused about the system or want help navigating it in order to stay on top of your child’s care, you should but this book. It is brilliant, thoughtful and incredibly useful.
