What Parents & Professionals Say…
Bonnie is a connector of people from so many different modalities that come together to assist students, building a bridge of understanding between parent, educator, and a system that struggles to understand how all of these pieces fit together.Vickie Bockenkamp
There are not many people as uniquely experienced who can assist so effectively and personally as Bonnie. The special education process is often, sadly, beyond basic logic and reasoning. An advocate like Bonnie is a necessity to survive and thrive for families in this path.Jeanie S.
I credit Bonnie with instilling in me the HOPE that my daughter will one day be an independent, contributing member of society. Bonnie didn’t even know me at the time, yet I sensed her passion for advocating not only for my daughter, but also for me.Barbara C.
Bonnie’s tenacity with staying abreast of the latest research on child development, special needs and navigating special needs administration is unparalleled. Whether one’s needs in these areas are light, moderate or extensive — Bonnie as an advocate and coach would be an immense asset.Amy B.
