Book included: IEP Development Assessment Wheel™: Strategies and Solutions for Parents and Teachers to Build IEPs that Work in the Real World
Join us for a Special Education Strategy three-part webinar series that will help you build IEPs that work in the real world to prepare every child for further education, employment, and independent living.
Together, we will be addressing 8 key areas of IEP development, including parent involvement, present levels, goals, accountability, supports (accommodations/modifications), services, placement, and collaboration. We’ll explore solutions to solve your most pressing problems from executing inclusion plans to tackling staff shortages, all while reducing conflict at the IEP table.
Do you feel like another year is slipping by? Gain the leadership skills you need to make this school year a success and prepare for next year. When you walk into your next IEP meeting, you’ll be ready to make the toughest decisions about placement, therapies, and IEP goals, side-by-side with your IEP team.
Session 1: Setting the Foundation for a Strong IEP – Learn to simplify Your IEP process. You’ll be able to build compliant and meaningful IEPs with more confidence.
Session 2: Leveling Up Your Leadership – Learn how to implement accountability strategies, get creative when resources are lacking, and develop collaboration checkpoints.
Session 3: Conflict Resolution – Learn 5 questions you need to ask when conflict arises, what to do when you can’t agree, and how to build trust on your IEP team.
