IEP Informational Program - Feb. 11

Coming up on Wednesday, February 11, 2009, is a presentation about Individual Education Programs (IEPs) and understanding IDEA (the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act). This presentation is part of the Parent University Series, sponsored by Families ETC (Families Empowered to Change).

This will not be a dull, dreary, dry, boring program! Dr. Christy Chambers, former Superintendent of SEDOM, will keep you awake and interested in what you need to know to advocate effectively for your child in special education in any school in McHenry County (or elsewhere).

This program will be presented in the conference room of the McHenry County Mental Health Board, 620 Dakota Street, Crystal Lake, Ill. For directions, just "mapquest" it or plug the address into your GPS.

Christy presented an informative program to students a year or two ago to help them master the art of self-advocacy. Come to this program and learn the laws. You'll be a better advocate for your child, when you yourself know what the laws for special education students are.

Arrive at 6:00PM. Enjoy a light supper. The program will begin at 6:30PM and will conclude by 8:00PM.
