Event Description: 

"ACE'ing The Spectrum: A 3-Part Series on IEPs" is designed to equip parents, teachers, and caregivers with effective strategies for collaboration with IEP teams.

  1. Foster a productive partnership with their IEP teams
  2. Secure necessary services and supports for their students
  3. Develop a comprehensive understanding of administrative complaints, mediation and due process procedures.
