The Importance of Family Engagement in your Child’s IEP Process
All families want the best for their child and have hopes and dreams for their child's future. Families are in a unique position to promote high expectations and support their child's success both in and outside of school and in the future. Join us as we discuss how families can and do make all the difference in planning for a child's IEP. Participants will gain new ideas, information, strategies, and resources that can put to use right away.
