Training Options

* After many requests, we are introducing a Webinar training option.  While we would prefer to see your smiling faces and welcome you to our library with some hospitality, we understand that some of you aren't able to physically join us.  If you would like to participate in the workshop via a webinar, please select that option on your online registration form.  Upon receipt of your payment, you will receive login instructions.  The webinar will be held live in conjunction with the onsite workshop from 1-4 pm.

Scheduled Workshops:

The primary charge for IEP teams is to develop special education programs for students that confer a free appropriate public education (FAPE).  On March 22, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court announced its decision in Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District. This case addressed the question of how much educational benefit public schools are required to provide to students with disabilities in order to confer a FAPE.   The purpose of this presentation is to (a) explain FAPE, (b) examine the most important points of Endrew decision, and (c) describe how special education teachers, administrators, and other IEP members can ensure that they meet the requirements of IDEA and the Endrew decision when developing students’ special education programs.​
