Webinar 2: Parent and Family Engagement: Why it Matters in the Special Education Process
Wednesday, October 17, 2018 12:00 pm – 1 pm
Parents are key members of the IEP team and Maryland law has recently given parents additional rights. Webinar 2 will focus on the 2017 parental consent law that allows parents to refuse to consent to certain recommendations by an IEP team, such as the decision about whether a student should take the PARCC assessment or the alternate assessment aligned to an alternate curriculum, and on issues such as assistive technology, restraint and seclusion, and least restrictive environment that can profoundly affect the course of education for students with developmental disabilities.
