Debbie Gelinas

Debbie Gelinas’ passion has been about making the world better for all of our children. Her background includes advocating for children who have been abused and/or neglected, and for the past one and a half decades, her focus has shifted to being a voice for children who cannot speak for themselves due to disability and/or a condition that impacts their holistic learning. Debbie is Founder of IEP Coaching & Advocacy, an organization that strives to provide professional and expert services to parents of children who have a need for a Section 504 plan and/or who require an individual education plan, within either the public or private school settings.  Debbie has been a wife for over 35 years to the father of four incredible blessings, and their fourth blessing is now a teenager with Down syndrome.  Debbie’s love of her work is evident, and she considers it a gift to participate alongside parents as their child’s Advocate.  Please visit and IEP Coaching & Advocacy’s Facebook page for solid information that can help you advocate successfully for your child.
