Event Series Event Series (See All)

Join Parent Training Specialist Glenesha Milner on Monday, June 3rd, at 1 PM EST on Facebook for the continuation of the webinar series, “It’s a Great IDEA: Module #5. The Right of Students with Disabilities to the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE).” LRE is mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). IDEA stipulates that children who receive special education should be educated in the least restrictive environment possible alongside their nondisabled peers. Participants will learn what this means and how students should spend as much time as possible with peers who do not receive special education.

On Monday, June 10th, at 1 PM EST, the series continues with “It’s a Great IDEA: Module #6. The Power of Parent Participation.” One of IDEA’s principles is the right of parents to participate in educational decision-making regarding their child with a disability. In this workshop, participants will learn about the specific requirements IDEA places on school systems to ensure parental participation.

The series will conclude on Monday, June 24th, at 1 PM EST with “It’s a Great IDEA: Module #7. Procedural Safeguards.” IDEA establishes procedural safeguards to help parents and students enforce their rights under federal law. Participants will learn how these safeguards protect parental access to information regarding placement and transition planning, and the procedures in place to resolve disagreements between parents and schools regarding student placement. Please note that this date is two weeks after Module 6.
