PACER Center workshop in Elk River will address 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, March 16 at the Holiday Inn, 9200 Quaday Ave. N.E., Elk River.

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.

To register to attend this free workshop, contact PACER Center at (952) 838-9000 or (800) 537-2237 (toll free), email, or visit
