For many parents – adoptive or not – “back to school” now includes figuring out how to navigate the supports and services that are available for children with additional needs. Building off our recent Recommended Family Forum about educational supports, we’ll spend this lunch & learn talking about some specifics of IEPs and case conferences. Following our conversation, attendees will be provided with some additional resources that can help you make sense of the complexities and complications of special education services in Indiana.
This Lunch & Learn is ideal for recommended families who already have a placement with an IEP, or families who are working through the process of getting an IEP established for their placement.
Recommended Family Forums are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month, and are intended to be a time of education, constructive dialogue, and support. Occasionally, topics of particular interest to families may also be discussed during a lunch hour forum.
All Recommended families will receive an email inviting them to register for upcoming Forums. Upon completing registration, the family will receive an email with the virtual GoTo Meeting link needed to access the meeting. If you are not Recommended with Indiana Adoption Program, but have recently adopted or are in the process of finalizing an adoption and would like to participate, please email your request to your local adoption consultant.
