    About the interactive workshop:

    • Are you effective when advocating for your child at IEP meetings?

    • Are you able to ask clarifying questions or speak up if you disagree with what the school is proposing?

    This interactive workshop will help parents build effective communication skills with their child’s IEP team.

    This workshop is funded in part by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Education.
