ETB 31: In this 2nd half of a 2 part episode I continue to talk with former guests Jean and Brianna TenBrink, a dynamic mother/daughter duo about Project LEAH (Leaders Ending Abuse & Harm) a community coalition against educator abuse and mistreatment of children with disabilities in Texas public schools.
Jean, an advocacy coordinator and mother of 3 daughters, 2 of whom are on different ends of the autistic spectrum talks about the abuse her youngest daughter Leah was subject to in her self-contained classroom by teachers Jean knew well and trusted. The abuse was misrepresented and school officials lied about the mistreatment. It wasn't until Jean watched video footage of the abuse herself, that she was made fully aware of all that her daughter endured at the hands of those they believed had Leah's best interest at heart.
Brianna, Jean's oldest daughter is the Director of Marketing and Sales for Neural Divergence, LLC. As a Partner in the Texas Partners and Policymaking Program and a very recent MBA graduate, Brianna has been a tireless advocate for individuals with disabilities for the past 13 years, winning the Sibling Scholarship from Knapps and Roberts law firm, the Rose Award from disAbility Connections, Inc., and Advocate of the Year award from the Arc of the Gulf Coast which granted her the opportunity to speak on the experiences of being a sibling at district-wide conferences.

Together Jean and Brianna have co-founded Project LEAH (Leaders Ending Abuse & Harm), an organization that armors parents, families and allies of loved ones of students in the Texas Public School System who have endured restraint, assault or seclusion with educational, legislative advocacy training to foster macro-level change.
Project LEAH is affiliated with The Arc of Texas, Disability Rights Texas, Alliance Against Seclusion and Restraint, and Texas Partners in Policymaking.
This is part 2 of a 2 part series. If you haven't heard the first half of the Project LEAH interview, be sure to listen to it in its entirety. Jean and Brianna share their hearts and vision for ending abuse and harm in schools.
