Free Webinar Replay: A Parent’s Guide to Evaluating and Troubleshooting Your Child’s IEP or 504 Plan

In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn what to do if your child’s IEP or 504 plan is not providing adequate support with Susan Yellin, Esq.

Securing an IEP or 504 Plan for a child with attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) or a learning disability is time-consuming and can be emotionally challenging. You have to attend meetings, fill out forms and make sure your child receives an appropriate evaluation. Once a child is approved for an IEP or 504 Plan, parents rightfully expect to get the most effective supports, accommodations, and services to help him or her excel in the classroom.

It doesn’t always turn out that way. Many parents find that the IEP or 504 Plan doesn’t work for their child. Their grades don’t improve, and they aren’t learning any more than they did before the accommodations and services were in place. Parents must be vigilant in determining whether teachers are following the IEP or 504 Plan, and whether the accommodations and goals spelled out in that plan are what their child needs to truly succeed in school.

In this webinar, parents will learn:

  • The clues that tell parents whether an IEP or 504 Plan is meeting their child’s needs
  • The practical steps parents can take if educators aren’t following the written IEP or 504 Plan
  • Parents’ rights if they believe that the IEP or 504 Plan is not providing sufficient or appropriate support
  • How parents can make minor changes to an IEP or 504 Plan
  • The role of a new evaluation or functional behavioral assessment in improving an IEP or 504 Plan
  • The legal recourse if the school refuses to make the changes parents believe are needed
