The IEP Advantage, LLC

Tracie Kelly is a mom on a mission to help parents of school-aged special needs children prepare for their IEP Meetings through her revolutionary new systematic step-by-step approach to IEP prep. Driven by her own personal journey through the IEP process for her son Spencer, Tracie’s passion lies in serving other parents who may face difficulties when it comes to their child’s IEP. Recognizing the need for a comprehensive IEP Meeting prep solution for parents, she created The IEP Advantage course, a groundbreaking resource that aims to set a new standard across the USA for parents' IEP meeting prep. Upon completing The IEP Advantage course, parents will transform by becoming informed, empowered, and well-prepared as advocates for their children. Tracie’s mission is to equip parents with the knowledge and understanding of the IEP process, enabling them to confidently participate in their IEP meetings and be a champion for their child’s rights. Tracie’s vision is to create a community of “IEP Parents” by bridging the gap between parents' lack of IEP knowledge and the rest of the school's IEP Team. These IEP parents can then give their children the gift of an exceptional individualized education, knowing they did the best that they could, and therefore setting their children on a path for a brighter and more promising, independent future. 

Tracie speaks on the topic of IEP meeting prep for parents of school-aged special needs children.

Attn: Parents of School-Aged Special Needs Children - Are you tired of your IEP meetings being so difficult and stressful? Well, it doesn't have to be that way any longer! The school districts have their IEP systems in place, and now, it's time for you to have yours!

Introducing our all-new IEP Meeting Prep System, created just for parents, called The IEP Advantage.

This system teaches parents how to become informed by teaching them all about how the IEP meeting process works. We teach you how to become empowered by helping you get crystal clear on your child's disability and how it affects their education. We teach you how to become completely prepared for your upcoming IEP meeting, so you will have complete confidence by providing you with the tools for a very successful IEP Meeting. A huge advantage is when you take our course... we take documenting your child to a whole new level - and this will prove as an invaluable resource!

Look, if you want to save time, money, and effort, experience reduced stress, gain confidence, gain the chance to have a great working relationship with your IEP team, and just finally get some of the hand-holding help you need (without anyone being up in your business or having to pay someone a fortune) to get through this difficult IEP process, then this course is what you need! Check out The IEP Advantage Course today... or you can skip it because you've put in the HUNDREDS of hours into IEP prep as we have, and you already have an amazing system that works for you...so you don't need this course. You can keep doing your IEP meetings as you have been, hoping that you get it right... But for everyone else who can admit that it'd sure be nice to have a simple and easy private IEP prep system in place to help you with IEP prep...

We don't just stop there, with the IEP Advantage course, although the course is our cornerstone!  We offer all-new supportive IEP Workshops, where we deep dive in on a specific IEP-related topic, so you can learn these topics from a deeper perspective and overall, become better prepared for your IEP meetings.

We also help parents with IEP prep in a number of other ways, including if you stop by our Blog Page, you'll find great articles with information you need to know about everything IEP.  Then, take a stop at our Podcast Page and you'll soon find stories of other parents sharing their IEP experiences or just stories that you may relate to, as living life with a special needs child.  Heading over to social media, we'll soon begin building out our YouTube, Instagram, Tik Tok, and Facebook pages, all of which provide additional information related to life as a parent with special needs children and everything related to the IEP.  We also will be using email to communicate with you, so make sure you've joined our group!  

We're just getting started this summer of 2023, but our #1 goal and priority is to serve you, parents!  And we have big ideas in store for you!  One thing that I've learned along my journey, in all honesty, is that had I just known and had all this IEP Meeting Prep information and system working for me, in place, like you'll find here at The IEP Advantage, my initial IEP Meeting experiences could have gone so much differently... so much better.  But, perhaps I was meant to have that horribly difficult initial experience with the IEP and IEP meetings, because it led to pulling my heart to serve other parents, so they don't have to experience the difficulty and lack of communication.  

The main questions for you to answer now are, how do you want to feel at your next IEP meeting? [Confident and in control?...] Would you like to learn our super simple system for giving your special needs child the best educational advantage that you can?  If your answer is YES, then Get The IEP Advantage Course today and give your child the very best support that you can!  And while you're at it, I invite you to hang around and grow with us, allowing us to become your network of support.  We've only just begun.  

Join us in making this summer your summer of IEP Meeting Prep, so you can head back in the fall an IEP Parent: having become: INFORMED | EMPOWERED | & PREPARED.

See you on the inside, my friend!  Let's do this together!
