The Twigs Advocacy Training Course
Finally! After years of people asking us to put this class online, it’s happening! Now you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home, and you don’t have to travel! All sessions are recorded so you can listen to them over and over again!
The Twigs is an elite group of well-trained parents and professionals who help children get needed educational services from the public school system as required by law. Many graduates have gone on to either advocate with The IEP Advocate or become an independent advocate on their own.
Now in its’ 8th year, boasting hundreds of graduates, this comprehensive intensive training program is for parents of, or people who want to help, children who are struggling in the public school system. Participants learn all aspects of special education advocacy.
Sessions focus on: Special education law, legal rights of parents, how to write an IEP, strategies for successful IEP meetings, Least Restrictive Environment, behavior plans, evaluations and testing, writing and tracking goals, assistive technology, 504 plans, the McKay and Gardiner Scholarships and more. If you have a desire to advocate for other families, maybe build a business, we’ve added a special session to help support you!

WHAT GRADUATES HAVE SAID:
This is an incredibly practical no-nonsense course where Pam crams in as much information as possible, that you won’t find anywhere else.
Even if you think you know everything, you don’t. This class exceeded my expectations.
It’s amazing how many useful tips, meeting strategies and real life stories are presented each time.These are things you can use the next day!
