What Will I Learn in This Course?

This section has 3 modules
MODULE 1

In this module, you’ll learn about internet research and how to organize that research into a system that will help you to get to the help you need as quickly as possible.

You’ll learn what Google Scholar is and how to use it to find peer-reviewed journal articles that show that you have authority when you speak to the IEP team.

You’ll also learn how to spot QUALITY research on the internet and learn that, just because you found it online, it doesn’t mean it is credible. We’ll show you how to figure out the difference.

MODULE 2

If you don’t understand the terms FAPE, LRE, ESY, BIP, ABA, FBA, IFSP, by the time you finish this course, not only will you know what they mean, but you will be able to use them to get the best education for your child as you can.

MODULE 3

In Module 3, you’ll begin learning the Histpry of Special Education so you can understand why the laws are the way they are. Then, you’ll go into a deep dive into the IEP Process. What are the steps? When do they take place? Where should my child be placed? and Why?

The you’ll learn about a Free and Appropriate Education. What is meant by Free? What is “appropriate?” and why is every child, regardless of where they are, entitled to it?

You’ll learn about Related Services like accommodations and modifications. What’s the difference between them? When should a student be given an accommodation? When should the curriculum be modified? And who decides which is better for the child?

First, in this Module of the special education advocate training course, we will dive deeply into the IEP Process. We will start the unit by talking about the different concepts of special education and how gender, socioeconomic background and location affect the process.

Then we will then go into the history of special education from the EHA (All Handicapped Children’s Act) to what is currently mandated federal law, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA) and how these laws have changed the face of education for exceptional children in any classroom.

Finally we’ll finish the Module discussing the parts of the IEP, the people involved with the IEP, and what your role as a member of the IEP team is. We will talk about FAPE and how you make sure your child is getting it in the correct learning environment using the right accommodations and modifications.

WOW!

We weren’t kidding when we said this was the most comprehensive special education advocate training course written specifically for parents.

All of this content could cost you hundreds of dollars if you were to learn the same material with someone else.

Similar courses cost as much as much as

$725

and those are not self-paced so you have to show up at a specific time on a specific day if you want to ask questions.

If that wasn’t enough…

When you enroll in class, you’ll be given access to a private Facebook group for current and former students. In this group, we share experiences, ask questions, give encouragement and help each other to become better advocates for our own children as well as the children of all the other students.

It’s an AMAZING resource!

Don’t take our word for it. Read what others who have taken this course have to say.

This course is awesome. I can’t recommend it highly enough. I would strongly suggest parents take this course as it is that informative.

 I have run into more parents with similar issues and just with the small bit I’ve completed so far and casual conversation, I end up being asked for input.

I have been doing the PASEN course and feel SO grateful for all the great information there and in this FB group. This is great! The curated collection of links alone is gold.

I’m feeling a lot more confident as I learn more about the process, law, rights, and ways we can participate to help our children.

It has saved me so much time going down a rabbit hole online to have this already collected and organized. I can’t wait for the second set to come out!

What’s the Bottom Line?

How much could you plan to spend if you need an advocate? According to Salary.com, the AVERAGE advocate charges $127.50 PER HOUR to work on a case.

A typical client begins having 2-3 hours of a review of the child’s educational records. If the child needs to have an advocate attend a meeting, those usually last 1-2 hours, so you could spend anywhere between $382 and $637.50 and that’s for ONE CHILD and ONE MEETING. If you have multiple meetings in a year, or you have multiple children, you could spend THOUSANDS of dollars in just one year working with an advocate.

Parents who are members of PASEN get advocacy at a reduced rate. PASEN charges $35 per hour for records reviews and $60 per hour for a meeting. So, our members would pay somewhere between $130 for two-hour and a one-hour meeting and $190 for 2 hours of review and a two-hour meeting. This is a SPECTACULAR deal.

…but it’s still just one child and one meeting.
