Learn as much as possible to prepare for your child’s IEP Meeting. The IEP (Individualized Education Program) is the foundation for your child’s education, and you are a very important member of the team that develops it. Increase your knowledge so that you can be an active, prepared member of your child’s IEP team. 504 plans will also be covered in this workshop as well as helping parents understand how to obtain an IEP for their child.
This workshop is free but an RSVP is appreciated. If you are new to TACA, you’ll receive the Autism Journey Guide as a take-home resource.
