Are you aware of how much preparation time goes into a Special Education or 504 meeting on behalf of a school? Has an evaluation recently been completed on your child? Does your child require a 504 plan or an IEP? Are you happy with your child’s current Special Education(IEP) or 504 plan? Is the information clear and measurable? Schools have many different experts preparing information on behalf of your child; should you as well?
Understanding the IEP and Special Education process is very difficult even for trained professionals. With laws and regulations that change on a regular basis, it can be challenging. If you are a parent that does not have a full understanding of an IEP and/or the Special Education process, it becomes an even bigger challenge. Many parents are not aware that they have an equal role, so it is crucial to have a strong understanding of how everything works.
Lance Halpern E.d. S. a Certified N.J. / N.Y. School Psychologist and Licensed Professional Counselor has extensive experience working with public and alternative schools, and is well versed in all components of Special Education. As a current member of a Child Study Team coupled with his private practice which focuses on Psycho Educational and Counseling Services, Lance Halpern has taken his familiarity with school culture to assist in parents, students, schools, and school law attorneys, in education-related issues including administration, special education, sol evaluation, litigation support, and risk analysis. His workshop will assist in bridging the gaps between professional special educators, the legal system, and the family.
By using an accessible vocabulary this workshop will allow parents to easily understand a child’s deficits, the unique needs created by deficits and the child’s rights to a free and appropriate public education. By explaining Deficits, Evidence, Experts, Needs, and Rights this workshop will guide parents through the process of documenting a child’s problems, with supporting evidence, and identifying and justifying appropriate interventions. This workshop will also help parents transform concerns to ensure school accountability in the IEP or 504 process.
