Ability Advocates

The IEP is the blueprint to a 
child's future. It is key to 
unlocking the possibilities of 
children in special 
education. Getting it right is 
never easy.  Ability 
Advocates believes that 
good, honest communication
is the foundation of any solid 
and useful IEP. Developing 
the atmosphere where the 
TEAM can do their best 
thinking is imperative to a 
positive outcome. 
Advocating dignity and 
respect is where we start.

Unless you have 
unlimited money, your 
biggest resource may 
be your ability to 
communicate well and to
lead when you are not in

The No Parent Left Behind Tour 2008

The No Parent Left Behind Tour 2008 was a success 
beyond measure.  First let me thank all my friends 
old and new that welcomed me into their homes. The 
No Parent Left Behind Tour 2008 was about 
demonstrating to myself,  parents and others what is 
possible. The key to the journey was all about 
relationships. I drove coast to coast 9,953 miles in as 
I planned 40 days! America the beautiful!  I didn't think 
it would take this long to get to this place. This place I 
talk about is having a plan to go forward. Bill Cosby 
asked why is there air. I asked why was this journey 
so important for me to make. And the answer is: to 
know I can go again, and again ...  Next time a 
minivan full of boys!  More on that later.

A special thanks to
Bev and Don in
Lincolnville, Maine.
This was no April fools
joke.  My first stop.
April 1-2 ,2008.

picture, I tried taking this picture myself. It didn't work. 
A good man got out of his truck and offered to take it. 
He did. From there I knew it was on!

An America I can believe in. Some local people that 
believed in me: Fran, Hope Center of Delaware, 
Delaware Family Voices,  Delaware Birth to Three 
Program, Delaware New Scripts,  Bargain Tire & 
Service, and Sports Car Service. Thank you.
