IEP Advocacy

The IEP, Individualized Education Program, is a written document that’s developed for each public-school child who is eligible for special education. The IEP is created through a team effort and reviewed at least once a year. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), a federal law, requires certain information to be included in the IEP but doesn’t specify how the IEP should look. Because state and local school systems may include additional information, forms differ from state to state and may vary between school systems within a state.

Finding out that your child needs an IEP and/or struggling to fight for your child’s needs, can be an unknown process through an emotional journey. In2Great! offers IEP help, direction, consultation and advocacy for your family to help you advocate for your child. We are ready to help you understand and navigate the process.

Navigating the educational system can be confusing or overwhelming. In2Great! wants our parents to know they are always supported throughout this journey. Kara Johnson offers educational advocacy support to parents and families in a collaborative, supportive, and skillful way!

Kara is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and maintains her Professional Educator License. She has over ten years experience working in the public schools in settings ranging from pre-k through 8th grade. Her work has included 504 case management, educational evaluations, FBA/BIP development and implementation, provision of direct services to students, and participation in countless educational meetings. Kara is passionate about supporting families as they navigate the educational system. She believes that families should never have to feel confused or voiceless when interacting with their child’s school.
