Together, Donna and Marsha have over sixty years of expertise in the field of special education. As resource teacher and speech pathologists, we worked with students and families to provide quality education. As Program Specialists and Compliance Facilitators, we served our district by working collaboratively with teachers and schools to ensure student needs were addressed within the parameters of special education law. More recently, we taught a college level class for teachers seeking alternative certification in special education. In addition, we have presented workshops to professionals for National Business Institute on legal requirements for student records and on IEP and 504 plans. We have presented to families on topics such as Extended School Year Services, writing appropriate goals on IEPs and parental participation in IEP meetings for nonprofit organizations. We have worked with attorneys to review special education records for Charter Schools. Domingue & Steib has offered expertise to companies providing educational information to parents regarding the special education process. We've attended IEP meetings with parents of children with disabilities to support them in acquiring the appropriate services for their child. We've worked with parents to file formal complaints when all other avenues to acquire appropriate services were exhausted. In our effort to stay abreast of current special education regulations, we attended a Wright's Law workshop in California and ESSA workshops in Maryland and Texas in 2016.
