Empowering Families with 20 Years of Special Education Expertise

I'm Dr. Stephanie Reissner, and I have dedicated my professional life to supporting and advocating for children with special needs and their families. With nearly two decades of experience in the field of Special Education, my journey has been shaped by a deep passion for helping students reach their full potential and a commitment to empowering parents and educators with the tools they need to navigate the complex world of special education.

My Journey

My career began as a Special Education teacher, where I worked directly with students to support their learning and development. Through these years in the classroom, I saw firsthand the challenges that families face in securing appropriate services and accommodations for their children. This experience ignited my passion for advocacy and drove me to further my education and expertise.

My work is driven by the belief that every child deserves access to an education that meets their unique needs. I understand the frustrations and obstacles that families face, and I am here to provide the guidance, support, and tools necessary to overcome these challenges. Advocacy can be a daunting journey, but with the right knowledge and skills, it becomes a powerful tool for change. I invite you to explore my services and resources, and I look forward to supporting you on your advocacy journey.
