Whether you’re new to special education or have been involved for a while, this workshop is for you. This presentation provides families with an introduction to their rights and responsibilities as parents of children with special needs under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the New Jersey Code, and Section 504 of theVocational Rehabilitation Act. Parents begin to identify dreams and goals for theirchildren, understand laws and learn advocacy strategies that will help them help theirchildren reach those goals. Parents of classified children and children who are having difficulty in school, but may not be classified, will benefit from this training.
Disclaimer: In the event of inclement weather we will email registrants with information about possible cancellation of the workshop.
