PACER Center workshop will focus on planning for educational inclusion

Minneapolis: PACER Center will offer “Planning for Educational Inclusion,” a free workshop for parents of children with disabilities and for professionals. It will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31 at PACER Center, 8161 Normandale Blvd., Bloomington.

Participants will learn about including students with significant disabilities in regular K-12 educational settings and in the general curriculum.

The workshop will address these questions:

  • What is educational inclusion?
  • How can parents use the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process to plan for inclusion?
  • How does the IEP team determine the least restrictive environment?
  • Why is it important to have access to the general curriculum?
  • Why and how should a child with disabilities participate in district and state assessments?
  • What is the state of educational inclusion in Minnesota and nationally?

This event is funded in part by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Education.
