Special Needs Help In School
The month of September is all about how to help your child have optimum success in school. This podcast is the first of three in help for issues in school.
What is an IEP or a 504 plan, and how can you qualify for one?
Have you ever run into confusion and needed help with your child’s special needs at school? This is all too common, but we have solutions for you. In this video podcast interview with special ed expert Bonnie Landau, you will learn: What is an IEP or a 504 plan, and how you can qualify for one. How to know when to seek a school advocate and how to find one. What is the school’s special education profile? How can a parent request an evaluation for issues the child has? What can a parent do if the school says, “no” to doing an evaluation? If they do the evaluation, how do they determine if the child is eligible for services? Why is it important to put everything in writing?
