Join the Council for Exceptional Children for the second webinar in their new quarterly webinar - Meaningful & Defensible IEPs with Dr. Mitchell Yell!
Each quarter, this webinar delivers exactly what special educators need to know to consistently develop educationally meaningful and legally defensible IEPs. When legal challenges arise regarding the provision of FAPE to a student with a disability, the appropriateness of the student's IEP becomes the primary focus. In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court has referred to the IEP as the "centerpiece" for ensuring that a free appropriate public education (FAPE) is provided to all students with disabilities. In reviewing an IEP, courts and due process hearing officers apply a two-pronged legal test that examines both the procedural and substantive aspects of IEP development. In this interactive webinar, we will explore the essential considerations for the process of IEP development and essential content considerations for IEPs and address questions you may have about the process.
