The Framingham Special Education Parent Advisory Council in conjunction with the Federation for Children with Special Needs presents a free workshop being offered to parents and professionals:

Basic Rights in Special Education

The Basic Rights presentation provides an introduction of the complex special education laws and procedures.

Workshop topics include:

  • Individuals with Disabilities Education Act
  • Massachusetts Laws
  • Evaluations and Referrals
  • The team meeting
  • Individualized Education Program (IEP) and 504 Plans
  • Effective Progress
  • Transition, Review of Important Timelines

“Navigating the special education field can be a daunting task,” said Sheryl Goldstein, President of the Framingham Special Education Parent Advisory Council. “Attending this event is one thing parents, guardians, or professionals can do to receive the information needed to best work with your student’s educational team.  Whether you are new to special education or a seasoned parent looking for a refresher class, it is important to learn about your rights so that you can best help your student get what they need in school to be successful. I hope to see many new and familiar faces on 1/16/19 at the Cameron Middle School auditorium.”

The event takes place on January 16, 2019 from 7-9pm at the Cameron Middle School 215 Elm Street Framingham, MA.
