DSES – Educator Session – Special Education/Inclusion/IEPs

February 20 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Down Syndrome Alliance of the Midlands
The Down Syndrome Education Series (DSES) is a monthly educational seminar for families of children with Down syndrome, designed to connect parents with information that will positively impact the education and well-being of their child.
The Educators’ session for February 2018 is entitled: “FAPE, LRE, IEP, FBA, BIP…It’s all so confusing! What’s my role in all of this? How can I make sure my students get what’s best for them?” by Dr. Brian Herndon
Educators will learn about special education topics that are important to parents. They will also learn more about what their role is in this whole process and how they can operate within that role to ensure that IEP meetings go smoothly!
