I’ve processed hundreds of Medicaid waiver applications, prepared financial aid award packages for new and returning college students, reviewed college admissions documentations and conducted new student orientation/training for parents of college freshman with intellectual disabilities. I know what it takes to create a network of support for your child to transition into adulthood seamlessly. This is not an easy process. It takes time, persistence, and dedication. There are so many steps to consider. Let me simplify the process for you.
I know what its like to be on both sides of the table. As a special need’s sibling, I understand what its like to search for resources, support and solutions for your family member with no help in sight. All you get are No’s, let me see, or I’ll get back to you. Guess what, sometimes they never do or the answers force you back to square one, empty handed. I also know what its like to tell a family these exact same words because they started too late or didn’t know how to navigate the eligibility process efficiently. Don’t let this be your story.
Time and time again, special needs moms, with adult children tell me they wished they knew about my services years ago with heavy, worn out eyes. Special education teachers are messaging me and asking. “Why aren’t community agencies showing up to the IEP transition team meetings”? One special education teacher told me, “I didn’t even know community agencies were supposed to attend the IEP transition meeting”? The waitlist is how long again? 12+ months!!! one parent asked, perplexed in doubt. I hear their concerns each and every day. Special education teachers want to help, empower and support parents. However, this part of the IEP process can create feelings of defeat when the IEP meeting is over. Why? because their parents leave the Transition IEP team meeting with their heads down in defeat. Not anymore! This can become a distant memory. You can become the special education teacher that knows what and when to complete vital steps in the adult transition planning process. Special needs mom, you can become the knowledgeable, confident and the transition expert IEP mom imaginable.
Let me show you how.
Organizations such as Wrights Law yellow pages, Parent to Parent GA, Autism Speaks, Families First, Georgia State University IDEAL, and GACRS Georgia Center for Resources and Support have partnered with me or listed my services as support resources in order to provide the guidance and support you need to secure a bright future for your child with special needs.
Special needs parents, now is the time to put a plan in place to secure a bright future for your child. Don’t know how you're going to get it done, who to reach out to or what to do next? You don't have to do it alone. I am ready to take this journey from confusion to clarity with you. As your child ventures into a brave new world, I know first-hand what it takes to build a lasting team of support for your child. Have the confidence and peace of mind, knowing that you have a plan in place for your child. So, are you ready to get started??
