Building Individualized Education Programs that Work: The Educational Benefit Review Process -
Session for Families- ACES

*This is a one day event -Thursday, December 6, 2018

Audience:

Parents and Guardians

Presenter:

Nitza Diaz SERC Consultant

Description:

This overview of the Educational Benefit Review Process will guide families in using this hands‐on protocol to help determine if a student’s IEPs were "reasonably calculated" for him or her to achieve educational benefit. The experience is designed to assist families in understanding the IEP and making informed decisions about how their child’s education will ready him or her for college, career, and life.

This session explores the concept of "educational benefit" as set out by the Supreme Court in Board of Education v. Rowley (1982); the quality of IEPs that are likely to result in educational benefit; the alignment of all IEP elements needed to create a comprehensive and cohesive educational program; and how to use the Educational Benefit protocol to become a more active participant in the PPT/IEP process.

**Participants should bring a copy of their child’s most recent IEP**
