“Compliance and Education are not the same thing. A student may look as though they are complying but that does not mean they are engaged and learning.” – Lisa Wright, Episode 127.

Are you terrified or filled with rage / fear every time you need to make contact with your child’s school? Do you lie awake at nights because the process of interaction / working with IEPs has become border-line trauma inducing for you? It used to be that way for me as well…

Recently, I had a transformative conversation on my podcast with Lisa Wright, an IEP Coach, where she shared a profound and mindset-shifting statement:

“Compliance and Education are not the same thing. A student may look as though they are complying, but that does not mean they are engaged and learning.”

Take a minute and read that again.

In this week’s podcast episode, Lisa and I delve into the intricate landscape of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). If IEPs are challenging for you, this episode is for you!

Click here now to listen to the episode. There are just so many insights in here, but 3 primary things that stood out to me are:

  • Tools for parents to help navigate school meetings
  • Why compliance and engagement are different
  • Why goals should focus on the learner’s strengths, not behaviors.

And just a reminder, I believe in your advocacy journey and the incredible impact you’re making for your child.

I believe in your learner, in the incredible intelligence, whether manifest or unmanifest.

And I believe in YOU!

Onward, my friend!

P.S. I am thinking of a journal or a thinking prompt to complement this episode. I will reach out early next week with a free download that can make your IEP / school journey easier!
