The purpose of this session is to explore skills that parents can use, in partnership with schools, to help children thrive. This session will also engage kids in self-advocacy strategies. Topics for this session include: understanding disability, knowing your school district, knowing your rights and responsibilities, organizing your paperwork to support clear and effective communication, understanding the special education process, and knowing how to resolve disagreements.
This workshop is for families of students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) who are in middle school or high school. We will provide you with information and resources to start planning for the future now. We’ll look closely at
* Educational Development Plan (EDP)
* Graduation standards
* Diploma vs Certificate of Completion
* Transition page of the IEP
* Rights and responsibilities
Learn how high school classes and the school environment can develop important skills and build pre-employment knowledge.
If you require accommodations or materials in an alternative format, please let us know one week before the workshop.
