2017 Webinar Series 1: Creating IEPs Using Accurate, Airtight and Organized Information

1.1 Myths and Misperceptions:  A Guide to Help Parents Make Informed Decisions Using Accurate Information

Date/Time: Tuesday, 6/27/17, 2:00-3:15 ET

Presenters: Missy Alexander, Advocate and Louis Geigerman, Advocate

Description: Parents learn about rights and responsibilities in order to better advocate for their child’s right to FAPE.  However, there are many myths and misperceptions shared at IEP meetings that derail advocacy efforts; for example, “a child’s diagnosis is under the medical model of the disability, not the educational model.”  The purpose of this presentation is to identify and debunk these myths and misperceptions, giving participants tools to use to effectively overcome objections.  

1.2 Organizing Data to Tell Your Story

Date/Time: Thursday, 7/13/2017, 2:00-3:15 ET

Presenters: Penny Simpson, 

Description: Don’t shy away from numbers, use them to your advantage! Learn how to take IEPs, evaluations, test scores, and other data straight from the student’s school record and turn hundreds of pages of information into Charts and Graphs that tell a powerful story.


1.3 
Putting Feet on the IEP: Implementation, Fidelity Data, and Progress Monitoring

Date/Time: Wednesday, 7/19/17, 2:00-3:15 ET

Presenters: Ann Simun, PsyD. and Sandra Dixon, Advocate

Description:  "Parents, advocates, and attorneys invest much time and attention into developing IEPs that are reasonably calculated to provide meaningful educational benefit, but what comes next? How can you know if the program is working? What kinds of information can be requested in between annual IEP reviews? Must parents simply sit back and watch while the school staff takes over? Discuss answers to these questions and effective strategies for post IEP development advocacy. 


1.4 Creating and Implementing an Airtight Individualized Transition Plan

Date/Time:  Wednesday, 8/30/17,  2:00-3:15 ET

Presenter: Amy Larsen, Esq.

Description:  All too often our students are without adequate Individualized Transition Plans (ITP).  In this presentation participants learn to create an airtight ITP with appropriate supports and services specifically tailored to the individual student’s needs.  An overview of IDEA requirements of ITP, a discussion of current best practices in the field, monitoring and implementation strategies are included.  Current evidence based practices in the field, monitoring and implementation strategies are also discussed. Why an ITP is so important to the students’ future is explained. The audience is engaged in creating and critiquing individual ITPs.
