Seminar planned for parents of special needs students

December 12, 2017 by  

For children with special needs in Stockton, an Individualized Educational Program (IEP) provides educators with a guideline for their educational plan, and an upcoming workshop will supply more details about these documents.

The seminar, which is being offered to parents and guardians, will explore IEPs, discuss why they are important, and explain some of the terminology that is used when crafting one. Attendees will be able to learn about what their rights are as parents of a special needs child, and they will also be given an overview of the laws that surround special education in the state.

Along with all of this, those who participate will learn about how a determination is made when deciding whether or not a pupil qualifies as a special needs student. They will also learn how to craft an IEP that is well suited to their son or daughter’s individual needs and also how to communicate with the professionals their child works with on a day-to-day basis. Booklet printing can be utilized to create handouts and other resources for the attendees in an event such as this.

The Writing an Effective IEP for Your Child with Special Needs workshop, which will be held on January 24 at 2529 W. March Lane in Stockton, is being offered free of charge. Anyone who would like to find out ore can do so by visiting the event’s online listing.
