PACER Center workshop will focus on special education and challenging behaviors
Minneapolis: PACER Center will offer “Special Education and Challenging Behaviors,” a free workshop for parents of children with disabilities. It will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 19 at PACER Center, 8161 Normandale Blvd., Bloomington.
This workshop is also available online via Livestream on a computer or tablet.
Children and youth with challenging behaviors may struggle to be successful in school. Without specialized help to manage their behaviors or emotions, they may be unable to benefit from their educational program.
This workshop is for parents and others who are interested in learning more about the special education process, specifically for children and youth with challenging behaviors who qualify for an Individualized Education Program (IEP).
Topics will include:
- Special education evaluation and eligibility for students with challenging behaviors
- Understanding how the IEP relates to improved behavior and school success
- Questions to ask when the student is not making sufficient progress
- Information on resolving IEP disagreements through the special education process
This event is funded in part by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Education.
