Upcoming on Wednesday, February 4, 2015: Special Education Law Boot Camp by Shelby Walker, Esq., at the Library at Penn Brook School (68 Elm Street) from 7:00 to 8:30 PM. This seminar will focus on the basics of both state and federal special education law. Additional practice points on the do’s and don’ts of negotiation, tips and strategies for how to be an effective advocate for your child while building trust and respect. We will also cover the “W’s” of Advocacy: When should I begin advocating for my child? What laws should I become familiar with? What else do I need in order to be an effective advocate? Please note: If we have less than 10 attendees, we will instead focus on discussing specific questions about individual IEPs.
