Earlier on the blog, we shared a great workshop resource in SW Washington for families who’s children have an existing Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Such a workshop is a place to learn how to advocate most effectively for your child who currently struggles due to a lack of IEP oversight at school. However, the family who’s special needs child is transitioning into an IEP functions within a different set of circumstances - mainly the option to plan and prepare. Learn how to transition successfully at a workshop on Thursday, March 19, in North Portland.
At the Clarendon Regional Early Learning Academy (9325 N Van Houten Ave. Portland, OR 97203) from 5-7pm, you will examine the kindergarten transition through topics including:
- the difference between IFSP/IEP
- importance of vision for the future
- your role on the IEP team
- preparing for your first IEP meeting
This is a free workshop including dinner and child care hosted by FACT Oregon, a family leadership organization based in Oregon for individuals and their families experiencing disability, working collaboratively to facilitate positive change in policies, systems, and attitudes, through family support, advocacy, and partnerships.
