About This Workshop

If your child has been referred for a special education evaluation or is already eligible for special education services, you will be invited to attend special education team meetings. Many parents find these gatherings stressful, confusing and sometimes overwhelming. 

Join us to discover tools that will help you feel prepared to be an effective member of your child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) team. In addition to specific planning steps, you will gain approaches that help you effectively advocate for your child at the meetings. You will also learn about free support services that provide you with information and training specific to issues and questions you may have about your child’s circumstances.

After this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Apply action steps to prepare effectively for an IEP meeting
  • Identify the purpose and essential features of the IEP process
  • Apply strategies to be an effective member of your child’s IEP planning team
  • Access your state’s parent information and training center for support
