Our Videos Are Designed
to Help You “Get It”

We’ve had so many parents tell us that it’s overwhelming to learn about special education rights from the dizzying number of resources available on the internet. We get it, so we decided to break things down and simplify it. We’re not scripted, we explain it to you like we would want someone to explain it to us. We want you to “get it” and be able to “use it” in your own IEP meeting.
