REACH Center to host Parents Involvement in Special Services workshop on April 7The REACH Center is hosting a workshop on April 7 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. focusing on Parents Involvement in Special Services.
The workshop will provide families with introductory information on their rights and responsibilities as parents of children with disabilities, based on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
“Parents who have a better understanding of the special services process are better prepared to take an active role in their child’s educational program,” Executive Director Kristina Crites said.
During the workshop, parents will talk about some of their dreams and goals for their children, gain knowledge about the special services process and learn advocacy strategies.
The workshop is for any parent with a child currently being served under special services, may be getting evaluated for special services, and even those parents that have a child having difficulty in school.
