Parents of children with disabilities face numerous challenges that most parents don’t even think about. But all parents want the same things for their children - to ensure they have every opportunity to live a fulfilling, happy life!  

What if you could get your child everything needed and appropriate for them to have educational success? Including Services, Accommodations, and Modifications.
What if you could obtain every service and support your child needs to achieve their highest potential?
Wouldn't it be amazing to know exactly what your rights are and what your child is eligible for so you could step into your role as a CEO and confidently stand up for your child's education?

Seems like a dream, doesn’t it? 
It’s time to make it happen when you join me for…

Rock the IEP

A 6-week comprehensive course designed to empower you with the knowledge and confidence to become the CEO of your child's IEP meeting.

Your child’s disability should NOT stand in the way of the education they deserve!

Every parent worries when it's time to 
send their child off to school -
Will they make friends? Will they like their teachers?

But when you have a child with a disability or you suspect there are learning delays or, you have even more worries about school - Are they in the right classroom? Do they receive one-on-one attention? Are they safe? Are they getting the services they need? The list goes on and on…

Your child should have an Individualized Education Plan that acts as a map for their education, addressing their unique needs and challenges, and laying out everything they need to make progress toward their goals and academic success.

You know exactly how your child learns and what they need to thrive! That means you and the school should come together to design that map that sets them up for success!

But the reality is often much different…The school administration and team are not acting as a partner, they're acting like an enemy! Too often, you find the school…

  • Is more concerned with cutting costs than providing services;
  • ​Agrees to specific educational supports and services only to fail to provide them;
  • ​Pressures you to sign an IEP that you aren't comfortable with or haven't gotten a chance to look over thoroughly;
  • ​Not providing the right learning environment for your child

Meanwhile, you’re dreading the next IEP meeting because you…

  • Don’t fully understand the laws or what you and your child’s rights are;
  • Aren’t sure what your child is entitled to receive;
  • Don’t feel confident to speak up on their behalf or how to say it to get results;
  • ​​Have no idea how to hold the school accountable 
  • ​​Feel bullied by the team during IEP meetings or follow-up 

The good news is you can turn the tables at the next IEP meeting and get EVERYTHING your child needs to meet their goals and succeed in school! 

Think about what an ideal school year would look like for you and your child…

Imagine walking into an IEP feeling confident that ...

  • Your child receives all the services, accommodations and modifications that they need.
  • The IEP accurately expresses your child’s unique strengths and challenges;
  • Goals written in the IEP are SMART, Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic and Time-Limited.
  • Your child is in the right classroom setting for their abilities;
  • There are accommodations in place designed to help your child succeed
  • ​Legal protections are in place to ensure you never have to worry about unfair or inappropriate discipline;
  • ​There is frequent open communication and progress!

Most of all, imagine how your child will feel when they thrive academically, and make progress that will put them on the path to success and achievement.

So, what’s stopping you from making this the best school year yet?
 It is never too late! 

Is your inner voice telling you:


“The school knows more than me about the law.”

​“I don’t want to be seen as a troublemaker.”

​“If I fight for my child, I may make things harder for them.”

​“The school probably doesn’t have the resources to give my child what they need.” 

​“I don’t know where to start looking for information about my rights and my child’s rights.”

​"I don’t want to fail my child."

I know you want what is best for your child, and I know how hard it is to sit in an IEP meeting, worried that you are failing your child in some way. 

  • Do you want to, feel knowledgeable and confident, to become the CEO of your IEP meeting?
  • What about if I offered to guide you through the whole IEP Process, from beginning to end? 
  • What if I said, I will guide and teach you, the unique system I created, and give you a set plan, plan of action, and how to take action, to get things done in your IEP meeting, by getting your child, what is needed, appropriate, and deserved?

What if you could learn exactly what you need to know to get all the educational supports and services your child needs? 

What if you could walk into your next meeting feeling knowledgeable and confident with a plan in place?

It’s time to become the best advocate for your child’s education so you can do everything to ensure they reach their highest potential!

How do I know what you’re feeling?
Because I’ve been EXACTLY where you are!

Hey there!

I am Raven Woods, I am the CEO and founder of Autism Mama Rocks the IEP. I help parents gain the knowledge and confidence to become the CEO of their IEP Meeting.

Seems like a dream, doesn’t it? 

I was where you are, feeling overwhelmed, scared, like a failure, and my anxiety was through the roof! I did not know what to do or what else to do.

I have been there and I GET IT! 

I felt over and over again that I failed my daughter and couldn’t get her, not only what was needed and appropriate, for her, but what she deserved and had a RIGHT to receive.

I thought I knew my stuff from getting my Ph.d in google research on my child’s disability, special education, IEPs, and the law. (Just kidding, there is no such thing as a Ph.d in google but you get what I am saying:)

However, this hard work did not teach me how to go into my child’s IEP meeting and become the CEO, or how to properly present, persuade and negotiate.

I can promise you, I’VE GOT YOUR BACK!
Not only have I been there, but I have learned through training and most of all, by trial and error, how to master the IEP process.  

With 19 years experience working with children and 13 years experience as an IEP advocate, and disability expert, together we will Rock it!  

Finally, at the age of 14, my daughter’s IEP Rocks. She is getting everything that is needed and appropriate for her and is set up for success. 

I want to help you master the IEP process as well, sooner rather than later, so that your child can get what is needed and appropriate for them to have educational success. 

How did I finally do this you ask?  

By trial and error, training and experience, being a determined mama and taking action! I do not want you wasting the 6 and a half years that I did, trying to navigate and figure this all out, and in the midterm, our kiddos not getting everything needed, appropriate and deserved.  

I put it all on the table for you, in my unique system, so that you are knowledgeable and confident to become the CEO of your IEP meeting so that you can ®PPPN, Plan/Prepare, Present, Persuade, and if you have to Negotiate your case—bottom line... getting it done! 

Rock the IEP is a 6-week comprehensive course.

I guide you step by step, through the whole IEP process by helping you create a plan, plan of action, and then, how you take action.  

My unique and proven system that includes the, Hunt and Gather, and the PPPN,™Plan/Prepare, Present, Persuade and Negotiate Process will change your IEP career forever.
