Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

A couple weeks ago I had on Caitlin McLarnon to discuss how to navigate special education in schools. During that episode Caitlin shared how different these programs are from school to school, district to district, state to state. So what do you do if your child isn’t getting the attention and services they need?
That’s where people like Vickie Brett, Esq. come in.
Vickie is a Special Education Attorney in California. Her nonprofit law firm is called Inclusive Education Project, IEP for short. They are one of the few firms that provide pro bono, free legal advocacy and low bono, low flat rates for families trying to navigate the current and oftentimes complex system that is Special Education. Vickie is also the mother of two little ones ages two and four and has a podcast with her business partner called The Inclusive Education Project Podcast.
Listen as Vickie shares her thoughts, tips, and resources for correcting your child’s education if it goes off course.
In this episode, we discuss:
Why Vickie chose to go into special education law.
Your rights as a parent when it comes to Special Education.
What you can do if you think your child needs a 504 or an IEP.
What you can do once either one of these is in place.
