Advocacy Workshop May 5th

We are partnering with the START Project to host a workshop for our May meeting:

Family-Educator Collaboration in the IEP Process:  A Joint Training Activity for Parents and Educators
Families Can Make A Difference!

In special education, collaboration between parents and educators is essential to ensuring that the student is the central focus. During this training, parents and educators will explore techniques and strategies that enhance parent/educator collaboration in the IEP process. Tools that advance ongoing parent/educator collaboration in the IEP process will be shared.
