October 22 - Identifying Each Student's Strengths and Needs
Effectively communicating your child’s areas of strength and their unique needs sets the stage for children and youth with disabilities to be successful in school. STEP will provide tools families can use to provide important information about their child to teachers. These tools can also be used by teachers to gather this information from families.
- November 19 - Hearing the Families' Voice - Parent Concerns as a Priority
Understanding the concerns of families related to the child’s education is an important part of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process. This webinar will focus on how families can effectively share their concerns and also strategies for IEP teams to respond to parent concerns.
- January 22 - Supporting Students in their Least Restrictive Environment (LRE)
Students with disabilities are to receive education in their least restrictive environment, which means that students should participate with their non-disabled peers to the greatest extent appropriate. This webinar will look at child, family, and curriculum considerations to consider as the IEP team discusses the individual needs of each child related to supports and services to ensure student success in their LRE.
STEP's Lunchtime Leaders Webinar: What Does Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) Really Means?
Time(s): 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM ET
Least Restrictive Environment, LRE, is an important charge of the IEP team. But what exactly is LRE and how do we know what to choose? This webinar will explore the intent of LRE and critical questions for IEP teams to consider in order to confidently determine a student’s LRE.
