- Serving as a collaborative “thought partner” to help navigate complex challenges and inspire thinking which could lead to changes in paradigms, assumptions or actions.
- Assisting in the development of Special Education Parent Advisory Councils (SEPAC).
- Facilitation of ongoing “reflective practice” groups. (Administrators, counselors, special educators)

- Assisting and/or facilitating program development initiatives and special projects.
- Facilitation of groups in need of a neutral third party.

Relationships are central to the change process. The deeper feelings of trust and respect across relationships, the more willing people are to create and implement a shared vision.
