Most of our content has been authored by me as our in-house writer and moderator of our blog and I’ve been super-busy. We began a gradual reorganization a few years ago that has included, among other things, me pursuing my master’s degree in educational psychology with a specific emphasis on how people learn during the various developmental stages of their lives, best practices per the peer-reviewed research in delivering instruction, and evaluating the efficacy of educational programs. I completed the master’s program in December 2013.
I am continuing on for the next two semesters to complete a certification in program evaluation with a specific emphasis on evaluating the efficacy of individual special education programs on a per-student and per-setting basis. This specialized training, combined with my 22+ years of experience as a special education lay advocate and my 8+ years of paralegal experience that has ranged from due process to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, puts KPS4Parents in a position to look at special education cases not just from an enforcement standpoint, but also from the standpoint of best practices.
