Description

  • Transgender rights: How does emerging case law and new federal direction affect your schools?
  • Are service animals a Special Education consideration?
  • Balance the needs of the students with legal compliance and resources
  • Develop a data-driven, bullet proof IEP and avoid costly mistakes
  • Leave this seminar with concrete best practices to ensure compliance with legal mandates

One of the greatest challenges that you face today is ensuring compliance and implementation of the IDEA. With the many recent changes in both federal and state special education regulations, it is essential that you not only have an awareness of the changes taking place, but also have an understanding of how these changes impact your day-to-day activities and the students you serve. A cursory knowledge of the law or applying common sense does not begin to protect school districts and professionals against the potential legal and financial consequences of misinterpreting special education regulations.

Watch this recording for the latest information on developments in the reauthorized IDEA and gain practical advice on how to effectively implement IDEA requirements in order to ensure compliance with the regulations while meeting the needs of students with disabilities. Find answers to the following questions and many more.

  • What are the current Best Practices?
  • How can data assist in IEP defense and litigation?
  • How can I better support our schools, teachers and special education staff?
