I will be speaking Thursday evening, March 19, 2015 to a Parent group in Cherry Hill, New Jersey and they have graciously opened it up to other parents who may want to attend. It’s not far from the Ben Franklin for any of you driving over from Pennsylvania.
The topic is: “Legal and Practical Issues for Parents of Special Needs Children with respect to School-Based Discipline and Bullying.” There is a lot of misinformation out there about disciplining children who have IEPs or Section 504 Plans, as well as about the laws concerning bullying in the schools. Although there is much overlap with general education, there are significant variations for special education students.
I hope to provide some clarity to your child’s rights and exposures, and what you can do in advance in their IEPs or Section 504 Plans to provide additional protections and opportunities for growth.
The location is in the Cherry Hill School District Mahberg Administrative Building, 45 Ronaldo Drive, Cherry Hill, NJ. I will begin at 7:00 p.m.
Please say hello when you come.
