Parent Member Training
Thursday, April 21, 2022
9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Four-hour parent member certification for parents/families with
children with IEPs

Note: this is a four-hour training with an hour break:
9 am to 11 am/12pm to 2 pm.
You must attend both sessions to be certified as a Parent Member.

This workshop (through Zoom) will provide an overview and best practices approach to the CPSE/CSE process to educate parents and Parent Members and assist them to develop techniques and strategies to become effective members of the IEP team in their respective roles. This training is open to anyone interested in learning about the special education process, or even as a refresher course on CPSE/CSE! Parents or guardians whose child has or had an IEP in the last 5 years, will receive a certificate for submission to their school district to serve as a Parent Member at CPSE/CSE meetings. We offer this training four times per year.

Please email Bilingual Educator Saira Ayala if you are interested in taking this training in Spanish, saayala@wihd.org. We will schedule a Spanish option in Spring 2022 if there is sufficient interest.
