Hey, I'm April!
And I'm totally excited to help you develop a solid action plan for your child!
I grew up in a family of educators, working in every type of school.
My collaborative approach combines special education advocacy with real-world strategies that work.
After writing thousands of reports and just as many IEPs, I developed breakthrough IEP trainings that get results. Learn to advocate the way you've always wanted, NOW.
