It’s a Great IDEA: Modules #5-7 on Facebook Live

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.

Beginning the Journey I & II: An AI Presentation

Please join our AI presenter at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. EST.

Beginning the Journey I
Each child grows at an individual pace, but research shows that a child’s first three years are the most important time for learning. Early Intervention (EI) is a key step in helping eligible infants and toddlers, from birth to three years of age, onto the right path to learn and develop to their full potential. This presentation educates families of infants and toddlers birth to 18 months, or those children just qualifying for EI services, on the nuts and bolts of developing, in partnership with Early Intervention providers, an Individualized Family Support Plan (IFSP).

Beginning the Journey II
What happens after the 3rd birthday and your child transitions from Early Steps (Part C of IDEA) to the local school system (Part B of IDEA)? In this presentation, we will go over step by step what to expect when your child, if eligible, transitions out of Early Steps with their Individualized Family Support Plan (IFSP) and into the school system/Pre-K with their first Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
