Free Webinar Replay: Making the Classroom Work for Your Student: How to Build a Better IEP or 504 Plan for Your Child
In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn how to create an effective IEP or 504 plan with Susan Yellin, Esq., and Dr. Paul B. Yellin.
Whether your child has a 504 Plan or an IEP, the key to an effective plan is to really understand your child’s profile of strengths and challenges and then to build an IEP or 504 Plan with specific interventions to address his breakdown points, while enabling him to access content and to demonstrate his knowledge.
It is also important to keep in mind that both the 504 Plan and IEP need to provide FAPE – a free, appropriate, public education, which can include a wide array of services, supports, and modifications. These can include special education instruction; modified curriculum; related services such as speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, counseling, and physical therapy; and accommodations on exams, just for examples.
Parents need to identify what is working – and what is not – in the classroom and work with the IEP Team (and 504 Team, if your district allows parental participation) to craft thoughtful, proven strategies to allow access to content and ways to demonstrate what their child knows, while working to improve areas of challenge.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Why it is not sufficient for a plan to address a student’s area of difficulty
- Why “extended time” is not the solution to many attention problems
- Specific strategies and interventions to help with common challenges
- The role of related services
- How to use an evaluation to get your school to agree to an effective IEP/504
- What can you do if things aren’t working
