EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT SPECIAL EDUCATION ... BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK
Joining us in January will be board certified Behavior Analyst DR. WILLIAM R. HORN. Dr. Horn is a licensed psychologist, nationally certified school psychologist, a marriage and family therapist and a board certified behavior analyst with over 40 years of experience working with children and families in both the private and public school sectors.
Dr. Horn has unique perspective and expertise on building collaborative relationships between parents and schools. He will address questions and issues such as the following:
• How does the team determine the IEP goals and how many to prioritize? What is a reasonable number of goals to have on an IEP?
• I think that my child would benefit from summer services. What services does the district provide? Can I make them a part of my child's IEP?
• What are effective ways to measure my child’s progress?
• How can related services be integrated into my child’s school routines? How is the amount of therapy determined?
• My team and I do not agree on the IEP/evaluation/progress. What should I do?
