The Pervasive Parenting Center is hosting the Oklahoma Parents Center for an Individualized Education Program (IEP) training. This will be held at Carl Albert State College in Sallisaw on Thursday at 6 p.m.
This is free to anyone who wants to attend. I recommend this for all parents, educators and professionals. There is information that can be used to help anyone working with children with disabilities.
This is the third training the PPC has sponsored in this area, and there may not be another for a while, so I recommend that you make plans to catch this one.
I’ve been working with several parents lately, and one of the things I often tell them is that nothing scares a school more than an educated parent. That has nothing to do with degrees or diplomas. That just means that you have to know what you’re talking about when you walk into the IEP meeting. Don’t get me wrong, you want to work with the schools and not against them, but you also have to know what your rights are as a parent.
This training does that. Ginger Jaggers will present what you should ask for, goals, rights, and suggestions for modifications; among other things.
Even if you think you know a lot about IEPs, you should attend. It seems that, even with all my training, I learn something new each time.
You do not have to register. Just show up Thursday and be prepared to learn. If you have any questions contact me at [email protected]
