DIAMONDS VIRTUAL SPEAKER SERIES

This virtual speaker series was created to disseminate information to parents and professionals on a variety of special education topics.  Several of our workshops have included the option of earning 3-CE credits for eligible attendees.

What People Are Saying

"The presentation was well laid out, I liked the focus on externalizing behaviors for one half and internalizing behaviors for the other half. I liked getting information on how to advocate for children, and really getting to the root of the behaviors - the reason why."

SPECIAL PRESENTATION

March 2024

March 6th @ 9:30 AM ET

Input of the Child's Parent, What Does it Really Mean?

A free webinar exploring how parents can provide meaningful input to the IEP process, and how professionals, such as advocates and attorneys, can help to make sure that this input is meaningful and is utilized in shaping each child’s plan.

This session will explore the critical importance of the input of the child’s parents in the IEP process, a right long recognized by the Supreme Court as fundamental to the integrity of the IDEA, and details how parents and special education experts can ensure and document meaningful participation in the IEP process.
