Special Education and What Parents Need to Know

Please join us for an event hosted by the Brain Balance Center of York. Our special guest for the evening will be a representative from the Parent Education Network, a local community-based resource for parents of children with special needs. Sections of IDEA 2004 regulations will be discussed that are key interests to parents of children with disabilities.  The focus is on the special education process and what parents need to know to ensure their children an effective special education program. The Parent Education Network brings extensive experience to this workshop and is an invaluable resource for local parents in need of assistance. 

The presentation, “Special Education, and What Parents Need to Know,” will not focus on policy issues, but rather the special education process and what parents need to know to ensure their child is placed into an effective special education program in the least restrictive environment. 

In 1975, America passed an important federal law.  This law said that all children with disabilities had the right to go to public schools.  It also said that children with disabilities had the right to a free and appropriate education. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is the name of this law.  Almost seven million children with disabilities receive services under IDEA.  These services are called special education.

The purpose of this presentation is to explore the various components of the law and the Individualized Education Program (IEP).  Parents will learn their role and the schools responsibility in the process of providing special educational programs and services to the child.

The outcome of the presentation is for parents to become more knowledgeable, better informed and confident in working with the school, and providers, ensuring positive school outcomes for the child and youth with disabilities.

There are six (6) topic areas to be discussed:

  1. Special Education Definitions
  • Child Find
  • Assistive Technology
  • Child with a Disability
  • Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) 
  • Parent
  • Transition Services

    2. Evaluation
