Serving CUSD 300, Kane and McHenry Counties

Judy and her husband have a son with Non-Verbal Learning Disorder (NLD), PDD-NOS, speech and fine and gross motor challenges. She has first-hand experience in all phases of special education from early intervention through transition to adulthood. With a long-time background in research and data analysis, Judy decided to put her skills to use in finding a path to success for her son. She formed the Special Education Network, a parent support and education organization which has served hundreds of families in the past seven years. Judy strongly believes that positive relationships between families, schools and service providers are vital to the success of students with disabilities. Judy has worked intimately with the Parent & Educator Partnership and is a vital part of our team.
