Special Needs Education Help Center for Parents


Your child with special needs deserves an education that helps them reach their potential.  

I’ll help you be your child’s best advocate. 

The Special Needs Education Help Center is Perfect for Every Special Needs Parent Who Wants to:

  • Be confident you are getting everything possible for your child’s education
  • Stop hearing NO all the time when you ask for changes in the IEP
  • Learn what goals YOUR child needs and get rid of cookie cutter goals
  • Really help the team “get” your child and what they need
  • Get the IEP team to listen you


Dear Special Needs Parents,

Many years ago I was a certified teacher and I broke all of the rules.  I told you, the parent, the truth about your child’s education.  I would teach by day and coach parents by night on how to get more for their children.  I left the classroom after just a few years and have been working for you, the parent, for the past 20 years.

The Special Needs Education Help Center will help you be your child’s best advocate.  IEP advocacy really doesn’t have to be complicated and overwhelming.  In fact, we can change your child’s education in just one hour a month, if you are willing to take the steps!

Every Month you are part of the Special Needs Education Help Center, you will receive:

  1. A Monthly Online IEP Class with videos (see schedule below)
  2. Monthly Checklists to Get Results in 15 minutes or less
  3. LIVE video interaction with Catherine in a Private Facebook Group
  4. Weekly Q&A – Get answers for YOUR Child in our Private Group direct from Catherine

BONUS: Get HELP 24/7 in the IEP VAULT

In the IEP Vault, you get access to all of the tools I’ve been using for the last 20 years to get results for my 1:1 IEP advocacy clients.

BONUS Advocacy Letters & Emails:  In the Special Needs Education Help Center, you can download my exact words that work and tweak them for your child.

BONUS Videos: Search the Video Vault at anytime to get answers to your IEP questions, including goal writing, inclusion, therapy services and more.  Past monthly classes are also part of the IEP Video Vault!

See What Other Parents Have to Say about The Special Needs Education Help Center:

“I feel this amazing sense of empowerment having you in my corner. I’m kicking myself for bit doing this sooner, but I’m absorbing as much as I can!!!” – Karen

“Hi Catherine, Just wanted to let you know that the meeting went REALLY well! We went with a 504 for one son, which I agreed with. They accepted ALL of my (our) recommendations for accommodations. They actually added a couple more minor accommodations for the both of them. They decided to keep the IEP in place for my other son. I didn’t have to say a word! This is the FIRST time I ever felt like the special Ed team was advocating for my kids. I’m so happy!! Thank you for all your help again! 😉😊!”

“There’s so much information in here that I didn’t know existed. I thought I knew it all, but now I know where to start to get real change in my child’s IEP.” -Proud Mom of a Middle Schooler

“Want to share an outstanding advocates information. If you EVER need or even think you need help, some guidance or an advocate that really understands the special needs community I highly recommend Catherine Whitcher. Even though we live in an outstanding school district and have had little no issues with getting ANYTHING our son needs, we joined. Catherine and her years of experience are a wealth of knowledge that we can all use at one time or another. Sometimes it’s just really nice to have a little “help” in your back pocket heading into an IEP meeting. Catherine helps and guides families ALL over the country. LOVE her special education help
. -Debbie
