Writing Effective IEPs

Learn how to actively participate in writing an Individualized Education Program and navigate the “maze” of forms and paperwork. This workshop will help you identify your child’s strengths and needs and use evaluation results to prepare for writing an IEP. Tune up your skills and identify strategies to ensure that your child’s IEP is implemented and changed as she/he grows. More information will arrive in your inbox.
