Description

Understanding and Analyzing Your Child’s IEP

Join us for a unique workshop designed to provide parents with the tools and information necessary to ensure your child’s IEP (Individual Education Plan) becomes a truly collaborative and ongoing process between you and the school.

This workshop has been broken down into three parts. Our guest expert, Hanada Kardassopoulos, will lead you through your child’s IEP so you will gain a complete understanding of the purpose and process to developing an IEP document for your child. To participate fully, please bring a copy of your child’s IEP to follow along as well as any other important documents, including any formal assessments which may benefit the creation of your child’s IEP.
