The Nuts and Bolts of Transition at Age 3

Your Child’s First IEP
Learn what to expect, your role in the IEP team, and how to prepare. An IEP is a contract between you and the school. We’ll walk through the document page by page so you can understand what’s included.

School District Services and Placement Options
What services can you expect from your school district after age 3? Learn about what is available through the school district: What’s the difference between OT and PT? Is there more than one type of special education class? How can I get behavior support for my child – and more.

Thursday, May 3, 6 to 8 p.m.
Understanding Evaluations
Learn what an evaluation may consist of, what it tells us about a child, how to understand the scores, and how the evaluation shapes the educational plan.

When the District Says “No”
