Special Education Fundamentals Workshop
Understand special education rights and procedures in this self-paced Special Education Fundamentals workshop designed for parents! Learn key information you need to advocate for your child, including:
What to do if you suspect your child has special education needs;
How to write meaningful and measurable IEP goals;
How to track progress on IEP goals to determine if your child is making adequate progress; and
Eligibility: How do you know if your child really needs special education?
Eligibility is a process that is dictated by a law called Child Find. A lot of parents aren’t familiar with Child Find, but essentially it requires school districts to identify and provide services to all students with disabilities no matter where they go to school. So that includes children that are homeschooled, children that go to parochial schools, and children that go to other private institutions.
