Join us for a half-day series to boost your educational efforts!


Individualized Education Program: The Essentials - 10:00-11:30am

When a child qualifies for special education services, federal law requires the development of a document, called an Individualized Education Program. The IEP serves as a roadmap for services, including important information about a child’s levels of performance and needs, as well as goals for the child. This workshop will prepare participants to actively participate on the IEP team.

Presenter: Laura Arrington, Family and Youth Education Coordinator at Starbridge


Preventing Parent Burnout for Parents of Children Who Have Special Needs - 12:00-1:30pm

Extraordinary parenting responsibilities create extraordinary pressures on parents. At the same time, parenting a child with special needs requires energy, focus, and enthusiasm. The better off we are emotionally and physically, the better off our families will be. Join us to discover positive ways to cope with and effectively manage stress.

Presenter: Jacqui Liebman, Regional Coordinator for the Finger Lakes office of Parent to Parent of New York State
