Join us on March 6th for the A New Day for Children luncheon at The Revelry North End

First Wednesdays: Special Education Evaluations

Children and Family Services Building, Training Room 1 601 E. 5th Street, Charlotte, NC, United States

Have you ever wondered why your student receives so many different assessments during the Individualized Education Program (IEP) evaluation process? Would you like to know more about what those assessments are, and how to interpret them? This workshop will explain the basics of the evaluation process and commonly used assessments so that you can use the results to better advocate for services and supports for your students.

First Wednesdays: Special Education Dispute Resolution

Children and Family Services Building, Training Room 1 601 E. 5th Street, Charlotte, NC, United States

Feel like your student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) is not being followed? Disagree with the school about your student’s placement or amount of special education services? Not sure what to do about it? Sometimes advocating for your student at an IEP meeting may not be enough to resolve disagreements with the school system. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) provides several ways to resolve disputes that may arise. This workshop will provide an overview of facilitated IEP meetings, state complaints, mediation, and due process.
