PACER Center workshop in Marshall to explore how an IEP can support transition to adulthood for youth with disabilities
PACER Center will offer a free workshop, “ABCs of the IEP for Transition-age Students and Their Parents,” from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 11 at SW/WC Service Cooperative, 1420 E. College Dr., Marshall.
Schools are required to invite the transition-age student to participate in an Individualized Education Program (IEP) team meeting when transition planning or postsecondary goals will be discussed.
This workshop is for students with IEPs in ninth grade and beyond and their parents.
Participants will learn how to use the IEP to support the transition to adulthood.
Participants will learn how each required part of the IEP can be developed to meet the student’s transition needs.
Parents and students should register separately.
Parents should bring a copy of their child’s most recent school special education evaluation report and their child’s current IEP.
Students will participate in a separate workshop where they will create a self-advocacy tool.
To register for this free workshop, contact PACER Center at (952) 838-9000 or (800) 537-2237 (toll free), or visit PACER.org/workshops.
