May 30th | Keep Calm and Prepare for your 1st IEP Training

8:30am-12:30pm

Sierra 2 Community Center Room 9 | 2791 24th Street, Sacramento, CA 95818

Do you have a child turning three years old and you’re nervous about the first IEP? Don’t be! Dr. Lisa Lindsey, Director of Advocacy and President of the Center for Educational Rights, will conduct a workshop Keep Calm and Prepare for Your First IEP for parents/guardians preparing for their child’s transitional IEP. She will discuss topics such as the differences between early intervention and school-based services, the IEP process, the importance of assessments, what to expect in the IEP meeting, what happens if the team doesn’t agree, and information about timelines and future IEP processes. Parents who attended this workshop last year gave rave reviews, saying that they felt more educated and empowered to advocate for their children. Please note: this workshop is available exclusively to those who have never attended an IEP (workshops open to all families on various topics will be offered in the near future).

Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
