Sam and Sarah have two kids in school with individualized education plans or IEPs.  IEPs are are basically a contract that the school will provide specific accommodations, tools, equipment to help your child to access their education.  With the school year coming to a close they have had several IEP meetings to update IEPs for the upcoming school year. To start the show today they share their top three tips for having a successful IEP meeting.

Sam and Sarah's guest on the show today is Tanya Keller.  Tanya is a speech language pathologist and strong advocate for individuals with Rett syndrome and other complex medical needs. Sam and Sarah chat with Tanya about her journey of working with individuals with Rett as well as advocacy, and supporting families.  We were all so chatty that we split this interview in two.  If you would like to get in contact with Tanya, you can find her on her website: everyonecancommunicate.com

If you are a newly diagnosed family, you can find loads of information regarding Rett Syndrome on our website (linked below), including links to various foundations and support groups worldwide. And, of course, feel free to reach out to us; we love connecting with new families!
