Meet Mrs. Allison Imig Bishop, Special Education Consultant

(and sister to Dr. Huffman)!

 

Allison received her LBS I from Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois in December 2001.  She then received her master’s degree in LBS II: Behavior Intervention from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2010.  

 

Allison has a passion for special education students and their families and prides herself in being an advocate throughout the sometimes daunting IEP process.  She gets it and can be your guide. She has a strong knowledge base of the laws and regulations pertaining to IEPs as well as writing IEPs based on testing results, teacher information, observations, and rating scales.  It is her goal to make sure each student with an IEP has exactly that: an individualized education plan that will meet them where there current needs are and help guide them to where they need to be.  

 

Allison is the Special Education Coordinator at the READY Program in Champaign, Illinois. The READY Program is a Regional Safe School through the Regional Office of Education #9.  She has been a special education teacher at the program for 20 years and served as the Special Education Coordinator of the program for 12 years.
