Special Education “Basic Rights Workshop” in Wilmington

Wicked Local Wilmington has posted the following online:

Wilmington Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) invites parents, guardians and other interested parties to attend a workshop entitled “Basic Rights Workshop” on Thursday, Oct. 25, 6:30-8:30 p.m., at the Wilmington High School Library, 159 Church St., in Wilmington.

Presented by a representative from the Federation for Children Special Needs, this workshop provides families with an introduction to their rights and responsibilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Massachusetts Special Education Law and No Child Left Behind (NCLB). It is designed to help parents learn how to be effective partners with the school, to decide the child’s eligibility for special education, to plan, make decisions and to monitor the educational progress of their child.

If you plan to attend this workshop, it would be helpful, but not necessary, if you send an email to fjobrien@gmail.com, so we will have a sufficient number of handouts available.
