Basic Rights: Evaluation and Eligibility
November 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Please join Federation for Children with Special Needs on Wednesday November 18, 2020 at 6:00pm for our Basic Rights: Evaluation and Eligibility workshop presented by Jessica Sales Cohen.
This presentation is a comprehensive introduction into special education laws and procedures. We will delve into the purpose of the law, referrals, evaluations, and the team meeting process including determining eligibility. Further discussion will focus on services, placement, and what to do when you receive a proposed IEP. You will also learn what to do if the student is not eligible and parent’s procedural due process rights for resolving disputes.
Please sign up to attend through our Zoom registration link: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJEud-CvqTIpGdzmNNec5-CadyLFAI5MyhEJ.
Zoom will confirm your registration by email which will include your meeting link to join. All handouts will be sent to attendees from our workshop coordinator, Kristin LaRose, within 24 hours of the presentation.
