"Parents who have kids on IEP’s, I would highly recommend connecting with Beth Liesenfeld.
As a new teacher, she has been my go to for the last couple of years. She has so much knowledge, love for children, resources and the biggest heart! I have been lucky to learn from her!"

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW.
You aren't alone in feeling lost when it comes to IEPs.
This system is super confusing.
Many successful parent advocates just like you have learned to inspire the school team to step up and truly support their child.
All you need is someone to show you all your options and guide you through so
you can be the best advocate for your kid.

HI, I'M BETH!
As a school-based occupational therapist, I participated in 80+ IEP meetings per year. I started to notice parents who naturally inspired their school team to provide the very best supports for their children. (And noticed what well-meaning but unsuccessful parent advocates did, too!)
I turned my attention to supporting parents when I struggled finding my own voice -- and I couldn't have done it without help!
Welcome to ParentFriendlyOT, where we provide support and online tools for parents to build advocacy skills so they can get the support their child needs from the schools.
