PARENT EMPOWERMENT WORKSHOP: BASIC RIGHTS IN SPECIAL EDUCATION

Date: Tuesday, October 9
Location: Joyce Middle School, 55 Locust St.
Time: 6:30 Open Meeting, 7:00 Workshop (followed by Q&A session)

This is a FREE workshop aimed at helping families and caregivers of students with disabilities become better advocates. In easy-to-understand language, Special Education Consultant and Advocate Katherine Martin will walk us through the Special Education process: from identification and evaluation of student needs to writing the IEP, implementing the IEP, and what to do when the process derails.

What are your rights?  What are your child’s rights?  Come find out.
Even if you’ve attended one of these presentations before, we encourage you to come again. And please come at 6:30 for the Open Meeting, as we’ll be looking for your suggestions for speakers and workshops for the 2018-2019 school year.
