What if you could enroll in a course that showed you exactly how to write IEPs, save precious hours, meet every requirement, and advocate for your students’ needs?


Pull up a seat...
‘Cause class is in session.

And today we’ve got a pop quiz.


First question:

Spot the difference between…

The special ed teacher who writes out perfectly aligned goals and objectives, completes their IEPs with weeks to spare, and struts into their IEP meetings like a teacher of the month…

And the teacher who spins in circles trying to put pen to paper, submits their IEPs with seconds left on the clock, and slinks into their IEP meetings with the fear of a student called into the principal’s office.

Need help? 

It’s not working through lunch, dinner, and weekends (while wearing yourself thinner than that 8-year-old pair of yoga pants).

It’s not scouring the depths of the internet to find that perfect fill-in-the-blank template (that looks more like a Mad Lib than an IEP written for your student).

It’s not sacrificing your limited free time reading books from the pre-internet Stone Age or downloading resources with advice more generic than store-brand cola (that definitely doesn’t apply to your state).

And it’s not pooling together conflicting advice from other teachers who have different grade levels, specialties, or districts (that’s like using a language arts syllabus for a math class).

‘Cause even though those all might provide short-term solutions…

They don’t address the long-term problems.

So if you want to stop feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, and ineffective every time you sit down to write an IEP…

And start writing IEPs that give you the confidence, the tools, and the time you need to better serve your students...

You need to get back to the basics.

And learn all the things you should have been taught about writing IEPs from the get-go.

Most teachers never receive the training they need on IEPs.

So instead of learning the recipe for perfectly baked, 100% compliant IEPs…

You’re forced to start from scratch.

Since nobody gave you the right ingredients, you’re forced to take your best guess, throw a bunch of things together and hope for the best.

And of course, there wasn’t an IEP class in college and you certainly weren’t offered onboarding by your district, so it’s up to you to be the master chef.

So you roll up your cardigan sleeves and get to work.

But no matter how many hours you spend poring over data, monitoring present levels, or brainstorming goals…

You still don’t have the experience to write IEPs that come close to addressing your students’ needs (let alone stay compliant with a rotating list of rules from your state and district). 
So instead of following a clear path to finishing your IEPs, you’re lost wandering in a maze. And you don’t know if you’ll ever escape.

You don’t know if you’ll ever escape the endless IEP grind that leaves you falling behind on your other paperwork and a zillion other duties.

You don’t know if you’ll ever escape the cycle of working at the crack of dawn and late into the night that’s putting you on the fast track to burnout.

You don’t know if you’ll ever escape that overwhelmed “cramming for a final exam” feeling you get when you try to get your IEPs in before the final bell.

You don’t know if you’ll ever escape that sinking feeling you get when you have to run an IEP meeting (or when you get asked a hard-hitting question by a parent or guardian).

You’re tired of wandering around in IEP purgatory.

You’re ready to take the right steps and put your IEP stress behind you once and for all.

You just need a map to show you where to go.

Let’s get real:

You’re not looking for a miracle fix.

You’re a special ed teacher, you know what you signed up for.

But just because your job is hard (understatement of the century?), it doesn’t mean there’s no easy button. 

Because once you understand the steps you need to take to write more effective and efficient IEPs, you’ll be able to truly maximize your impact on your students’ lives. 

And start seeing IEPs as an opportunity, not an obstacle

So if you’re ready to quit feeling the pull-out-your-scrunchie frustration that comes every time you stare down a blank IEP…

Follow me.

Because I’m about to show you how you can simplify your IEP writing process.

➜ So you can finally get organized and take a structured approach to writing your IEPs that doesn’t involve making decisions based on gut instinct.

➜ So you can finally submit your IEP draft ahead of schedule and focus on actually being there for your students instead of getting stuck pushing paper.

➜ So you can finally have a balance between school and home life instead of burning the midnight energy drink just to get your work done.

➜ So you can finally have productive meetings with parents and guardians that leave both sides confident in your plan for their students.

Yep, it’s all possible.

And I’m about to show you exactly how you can make this a reality (and actually look forward to writing IEPs).

So if you want to stop feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, and ineffective every time you sit down to write an IEP…

And start writing IEPs that give you the confidence, the tools, and the time you need to better serve your students...

You need to get back to the basics.

And learn all the things you should have been taught about writing IEPs from the get-go.

3 Steps You Need to Take to Make the Leap from IEP Newbie to IEP Master

Work Smarter, Not Harder

Being a special ed teacher isn’t all recess and summer break.

You’ve got to monitor behaviors, provide parent updates, adapt class activities, prep materials for the next day…

And that’s not even mentioning all the tasks required to write an IEP.

So you get to work early, leave late, and add “finish paperwork” to your weekend plans.

There aren’t enough hours in the day to finish all your work (let alone find time to search for resources to help you with your IEPs).

You’re so exhausted from treading water that you can’t even consider planning ahead.

What YOU need: 

To find a repeatable system for collecting data, monitoring present levels, writing goals, and doing all. the. things. to write your IEPs.

And when you invest a little bit of time to get organized, you can drastically cut the number of hours you spend writing IEPs. So you can focus on other tasks that matter.

Use the Right Support


You’re a smart cookie.

You KNOW that you can’t do this whole IEP writing thing on your own.

So you dive deep into the Google waters searching desperately for someone to show you the way.

Only the info you do find is written for teachers way across the country. 

And the resources seem like they were written back when boy bands ruled the charts (team Backstreet Boys for life).

And even though your colleagues have your back, it seems like they’re scraping together their IEPs based on half-truths and good ol’ trial and error.

So you take bits and pieces from everywhere and cross your fingers that you used the right ones.


What YOU need: 

One central place with everything you need to write your IEPs.

A place that doesn’t just have set resources to pull from, but also evolves and keeps up with changing requirements.

So you can get help writing all your IEPs whether they’re due tomorrow or years down the road.

Make Every IEP Different
(But Use the Same Process)


IEPs are like snowflakes, fingerprints, or Netflix queues. 

No two are the same.

IEPs are supposed to be individualized (it says so right in the name).

So it makes sense to avoid using generic resources…

And to start from scratch instead.

You think long and hard about how your IEP can meet the needs of that one particular student. 

But no matter how many hours you spend or venti vanilla lattes you drink…

You’re no closer to finishing your IEP.

So you’re stuck spinning in place even as the IEP meeting draws closer and your other paperwork piles up on your desk.

What YOU need: 

A plug-and-play, proven system that you can use every time you write an IEP.

A system that simplifies your IEP writing process and allows room to make modifications based on every students’ needs.

By following the same general framework, you can write IEPs in a fraction of the time ...without sacrificing the end result for your students.

Wait a sec...who exactly is the teacher behind all this?

I’m a 12-year-veteran special education teacher and student advocate, Master IEP Coach®, and the founder of Intentional IEP Writing. 

Believe it or not, I’ve always enjoyed writing IEPs

As a self-proclaimed #datanerd, I love being able to collect information that helps me advocate for my students. But I also dealt with my fair share of growing pains when it came to preparing and presenting my IEPs.

I’ve spent over 10 years working in six states and a variety of special education settings to master my process for creating results-oriented IEPs in a fraction of the time of other teachers. 

And since teachers don’t get the IEP training they need in college or from their school or district, I’ve set out to close the gap.

I created an intentional IEP writing method to provide special ed teachers with the tools to reduce confusion, speed up their process, and confidently create IEPs that improve their students’ lives. 

So if you’re ready to stop second-guessing your decisions and start using a simple and repeatable system for writing IEPs, you’ve come to the right place. 

Step inside my classroom and I’ll show you my start to finish process for writing IEPs that you can be proud of.

“I’m so appreciative of this program. I learned more in this 5-week self-paced class than I did in my IEP writing class in grad school.”

“Before IIW, I felt rushed, I didn’t feel confident in my data tracking for the present levels, and I felt like my goals weren’t always strong enough. Now I feel confident that I can write strong IEPs, have them done in an ample amount of time, and will have strong data to support the present levels and goals.”

— Emma Shadbolt

“The entire course has exceeded my expectations because it has taught me a more simple and effective way for creating student-centered based IEPs.”

“If you are looking for a way to really improve your IEP writing skills, then this is a must-have, especially for the price point.”

— Jessica Reed


The comprehensive blueprint for writing efficient & effective IEPs


This ain’t your typical continuing ed course.

This is a hyper-specific IEP blueprint that will teach you to write IEPs that give your students what they need without taking away from your work or home life.

Written for special ed teachers, by a special ed teacher.

IIW is a one-stop-shop with everything you need to simplify your IEP process and maximize your impact.

I’ve used over a decade of experience working in special education settings to come up with my custom IEP writing roadmap that worksno matter a teacher’s location, requirements, or needs. 

IIW is perfect for:

Special ed teachers who are tired of getting hit in the face with writer’s block and are ready to use a systemized strategy every time they write an IEP

Special ed teachers who have used resource after resource looking for the right IEP writing formula but still haven’t figured out how to create IEPs that effectively advocate for their students

Special ed teachers who know they can make a bigger difference in their students’ lives if only they figured out how to put pen to paper and back up their decisions with cold, hard data

The result is a start-to-finish blueprint that reveals the exact steps you need to take to become a confident & successful student advocate through IEPs.

...All wrapped inside an easy-to-consume, self-paced course that works with (not against) your schedule (not the overwhelmed schedule you have now, but the one you signed up for when you started teaching).

You know you need to change your approach to writing IEPs.

But you don’t know how to take the next step.

Grab your pencil and spiral notebook:

‘Cause I’m about to take you back to school.

I’m about to show you how my Intentional IEP Writing Course can change your IEP process & results forever. 

By enrolling in Intentional IEP Writing, you can join hundreds of other special education teachers who have already transformed their IEPs.

Once you complete Intentional IEP Writing, you’ll have:

  • A step-by-step guide for collecting data, writing present levels, creating goals, and completing the rest of the requirements inside your IEPs

  • A structured system to follow every time you write an IEP so you can save countless hours spent spinning your wheels

  • Tools to present your IEP with confidence so you can get buy-in from IEP stakeholders

  • Plug-and-play resources to use any time you get stuck

  • A greater impact on your students through IEPs that put them on the path to success

But it doesn’t happen overnight.

You need to throw out your old methods that aren’t working…

And embrace a new way of doing things.

Inside my course, you’ll learn a proven start-to-finish framework for creating perfectly aligned IEPs in a fraction of the time.

So if you’re ready to let someone else be the teacher for a change (and to learn a better way to write IEPs)...

Step inside my classroom.


“My IEP writing system has become what I’ve always wanted it to be – consistent and organized.”

“The entire program speaks to my IEP-nerd soul. If you want to feel good about writing IEPs, want to feel like a successful case manager, and want to feel like you’re truly doing right by a student with their IEP, do yourself a favor and join this program.”

— Cortnie Cullen

I have always struggled with IEP writing and now it is SO much easier and my IEPs are now more complete and full of pertinent information that informs my goals for students success.

I’m so excited to share my IEP writing system with passionate special ed teachers that I’ll make a promise right now.

Because I know that price is a huge barrier for teachers who already operate on razor-thin budgets…

I want you to feel 100% confident that you’re getting your money’s worth.

Enter the “regret-free guarantee.”

It’s simple.

If you sign up for IIW, review the lessons and resources inside the course, and feel like I didn’t fulfill my promise of giving you all the tools you need to write better IEPs in less time…

Just contact my support team via email at [email protected] within 14 days of purchase.

I’ll refund you the price of the course.

No hard feelings.

No regrets.


You've got questions.

I've got answers.

Here are some FAQs your fellow teachers have asked before signing up for IIW.


No worries.

I’ve got an easy-peasy list of special ed teachers who will definitely benefit from the lessons, tools, and resources inside IIW.

Here are the 7 types of teachers who will get a much-needed IEP boost with my course:

  1.  You’re brand-spanking new to teaching special ed and you want to do things right from the beginning. Learning the right strategies now will set you up for a long and successful IEP journey.

  2.  You’ve been stuck spinning your wheels for years. Once you have a proven method for writing headache-free IEPs, you can put your problems behind you for good.

  3.  You’re already using resources to help you write your IEPs. You know that you can’t do it all on your own, but the tools you do find don’t apply to your needs.

  4.  You’re passionate about making an impact on your students. You’re not looking for a shortcut. You just want to write IEPs that actually help you advocate for your students.
  1.  You’re spending your free time and money trying to resolve your problems. You’re ready to stop using your own hours (and dollars) trying to fix your IEPs.  

  2.  You’re afraid that you have a one-way ticket to burnout. You know that something needs to change with your IEPs if you want to have a future in special education.

  3.  You’re ready to invest in IIW and are confident that you will get all the tools you need to boost your IEP writing process and results (and you know you can always use the regret-free guarantee to get your money back if things don’t work out).

If you gave the old gold star to at least 4 of the 7 above, you’re ready to sign up for the IIW course.


You know you need a start-to-finish resource that shows you how to write IEPs.
