Hosting a Conference
you want to learn more about hosting a Wrightslaw program, please review the page that answers your question "When is Wrightslaw Coming to My City?"
To see the sample agenda most commonly requested, please click here. Participants will learn about about special education law, both the statute (IDEA 2004), the special education regulations, and recent legal decisions (if any) in your geographical area and the status of any pending U.S. Supreme Court cases, and how these decisions are likely to affect you. You will also learn about effective persuasive advocacy techiques that will open, rather than close doors to quality services. For a sampling of some of the content, go to YouTube's Wrightslaw Channel and see snippets of some of the videos of Wrightslaw conferences.
