What previous ISEA graduates are saying about our program:

No matter what level of expertise you THINK you may have going into this program, you will leave it with the knowledge and real world information that moves you into the expert level of advocacy. ~Renee Jackwood, OH

Everything you want and need to know about Special Education Law. ~Veronique Baker, IL

Whether you are experienced as an advocate or attorney, new in this field, or contemplating entering this field, attendance is a MUST. It is rigorous, no time is wasted, and unlike many CLE, CUE courses, there is not one presentation that is not eye-opening and worth your attention. The networking is such a help, as is getting to speak with their superb presenters who are open to questions. ~Lynne Feldman, NJ

This conference was superb with respect to written material sources and expertise of instructors. I am convinced that I am headed in the right direction professionally and have renewed enthusiasm for this field. Thank you. ~Diane Slonim, NY

Life changing is an understatement. You will learn more than you could ever imagine and find a way to use the material regardless of whether you are an attorney, lay advocate, behavior analyst, or teacher. ~Crystal Peterson Barker, VA

The ISEA offers a comprehensive and in-depth review of special education advocacy provided by experts with "real life" experience in the field.  I leave the Institute better prepared to advocate for students with disabilities and with a significant list of resource information and contacts to assist with the advocacy journey.  The Institute was well worth my time.  ~Teresa Parks, IL

An invaluable learning experience beyond comparison. A life changing experience. Passion, excellence, and knowledge unmatched by any other program.  ~Tara Willey, CA

Incredible week making new friends and learning a lot! Highly recommend this very touching and incredibly important professional development for any advocates, lawyers, parents, and (yes) educators! Thanks to Pete wright and all that make this happen! ~Donna Farland-Smith, OH

Attorneys and Advocates learn to represent your special education clients from experienced attorneys and advocates across the country and make lasting connections. ~Nina Hennessy-Tamburo, IL

It takes a village and we must follow in the steps of giants in educational law this is it.  It is not for the faint of heart demanding and well worth it.  A life changer. ~Ruth Ann McDougall, MA

The institute gathers those with the ideal of making the world a better place through actions taken in the interest of advancing others' rights. I like the quote, "A rising tide lifts all boats." ~Connie Sullivan, VA

The ability to have frank discussions about the law, how it works and is interpreted and who it serves with professionals who have been doing it for years is priceless. The network of professionals at ISEA, with such varied experience opened my eyes to things I didn't know I didn't know. ~Kelleigh Bland, NC
