About the Podcast
Need to Know with Dana Jonson is your source for essential special education information and inspiration!
If you have a child with disabilities, congratulations! You have just become the CEO of your child's education! There are acronyms galore, terms of art that are counter-intuitive, and completely new rules for school. When you don’t have all the information you need in order to properly advocate for your child, things get messy and can escalate. I love speaking to, consulting with, and holding workshops for parents to help them be informed. I hope this podcast helps you navigate the rough waters of special education and beyond… while maintaining your sense of humor.
As a special education attorney, parent of 4 children with disabilities, and former special education teacher/administrator, I have seen special education from many angles. In fact, I have ADHD and Dyslexia myself and grew up in school systems that didn’t yet know how to identify or remediate these challenges. So far my journey has taught me 2 very important lessons:
1) knowledge is power and
2) you laugh or you cry… in case you are wondering, I choose to laugh!
I want to empower you with knowledge and make you laugh with me about the insanity that is my life, and probably yours too. I hope you will join me!
