It’s Those Wonderful Rights
Characters from the holiday classic movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” assist in presenting this fun and interactive presentation about procedural safeguards.   These provisions, in compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA), protect parents’ and students’ rights with respect to the provision of a free appropriate public education (FAPE).

With rights come responsibilities, and understanding their rights and responsibilities will help parents to become informed and active participants in the special education process.  Come celebrate those Wonderful Rights!

Both parents and educators report that I.E.P. meetings are some of the most stressful events of each school year.  Why?  Why would a meeting which generally only takes place once each year cause such anxiety?  This fun and interactive workshop examines the IEP experience from both sides of the table and explores proactive solutions for positive communication and collaborative results.
