Davenport, Iowa – March 17, 2010 - Special education law is notoriously complex and constantly changing. Making sure that children with disabilities receive a free, appropriate public education is often a frustrating, tedious process and may become emotionally draining as well as costly. So often, parents get lost trying to navigate the large body of special education law. Those who succeed in advocating for children with disabilities are those who educate themselves about their rights, the law, and regulations and procedures.
This is a great opportunity for parents, advocates, educators, attorneys, and health care providers who represent children with disabilities. This one-day conference will focus on special education law, rights and responsibilities, tests and measurements to measure progress and regression, SMART IEPs, and an introduction to tactics and strategies for effective advocacy. The workshop is being sponsored by the Autism Society of the Quad Cities. Wayne Steedman will be presenting the one-day special education law and advocacy training on April 10, 2010. The seminar will take place at the Adler Education Center, Genesis Heart Institute, located at 1236 East Rusholme Street in Davenport, IA
