IEP Plan Goals
Crafting a Powerful IEP for Your Child
A new IEP lunchtime intensive course starts soon! IEP Plan Goals for Your Child.
The last one was such a hit that we are running it again.
As a parent, you are a full member of your child’s IEP team. But how much do you really know about the meaning of key pieces of the IEP? It’s hard to contribute fully when you are somewhat in the dark.
This in-depth course will teach you to take charge of your advocacy for your child. Empower your participation in the IEP team by understanding what the IEP actually means and is intended to do.
Working in a small group of other parents, you will learn to rewrite key sections of the IEP, so you can take charge of the conversation with your child’s school.
Optional hour long 1:1 consultations available to help you build an advocacy strategy for bringing your new IEP to life.
The 3 workshops will take place online at 12 pm on Wednesdays February 2nd, 9th and 16th. Consultations will be individually scheduled.
February 2, 2022: IEP Nuts and Bolts – A clear and accessible breakdown of each section of the IEP, with a focus on key terms and concepts.
February 9, 2022: Being Goal-Oriented – Let’s start at the very end! Using your child’s evaluation and other key information, you will learn how to develop smart goals to help your child make progress over the next year.
February 16, 2022: Mapping Supports and Services – Once the goals are developed, what services and accommodations are needed? Learn to make the case for the strongest program for your child.
I hope you will join us!
From some participants in the last workshop series:
“Thank you for this course! It was invaluable and you taught me so much about my child’s IEP.”
“Excellent course. It was beyond helpful!”
