William and Mary Law School Institute of Special Education Advocacy 2018
July 29 – August 3, 2018, Williamsburg, VA

ISEA participants will receive a Certificate in Special Education Advocacy from William & Mary Law School after completing the course.

The Certificate in Special Education Advocacy indicates that attendees have successfully completed the required courses within the Institute.

We expect that many ISEA graduates who earn this Certificate will want to list the training as a credential on their resumes, CVs, and LinkedIn profiles.

(This course does not provide a certification or endorsement. In Virginia, there are no certification or training requirements to become a special education advocate. Check your state’s regulations on requirements for special education advocates.) More

When will another ISEA training conference be offered? Do you have dates, or places scheduled for 2019?


Question: A Pre-K SPED student who needs a vest to ride the bus to school, but does not have transportation as a related service in the IEP. The vest is able to be put onto the General Education bus. Can this child ride the PRe-K General Education bus that door-door-door drop off? Or does he need a SPED bus? SPED and General Ed students K-5 ride the buses together.


If the vest is placed onto the gen ed bus I see no reason student cannot take that bus. I would make sure that the bus driver knows what the vest is for and maybe look into the student having a 1:1 wrap around.
