Summary

As a total greenie in the IEP/504/educational advocacy realm, I was a bit surprised at the emotions that kept pounding in my heart. It was all familiar—the feeling of being a clueless parent in a new terrain as professionals used terms and procedures they assumed I understood. And of course, that familiar friend called grief.

It was all there in my first ever eligibility meeting. But unlike the early days of the NICU when I had similar emotions, this time I was compassionate and understanding with myself. I now know there are learning curves with every new stage, and I will come out on top.

In this episode, I speak to these emotions that came, as well as the happy ending to my first go at educational advocacy.
