Creating IEPs* ...getting the most out of your child's educational experience
*Informed Empowered Parents
Is your child getting what he needs at school?
Do you feel lost at ARD meetings?
Do you wish you knew more about how the
planning process works?
Join us as we explore…
- special education terminology
- topics that are discussed at ARD/IEP meetings
- the family (and child’s) role in the ARD/IEP process
- resources available to families
The more prepared you are for your child’s ARD/IEP
meeting, the better your input and contribution will be, and a more positive outcome for your child will result.
