Special education workshop coming to ISU Oct. 8

August 23, 2011

The Indiana State University Nonprofit Leadership Alliance and Autism Speaks U have partnered with About Special Kids (ASK), an Indianapolis-based nonprofit organization, to provide an all-day training titled "Roadmap to Special Education: Laws and Process."

The workshop will take place October 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in ISU's Hulman Memorial Student Union, room 307. Training certificates for professional growth points are available for this training.

The workshop will combine training for compliance with Article 7 of the Indiana State Board of Education's special education rules and the federal government's Individual Education Program (IEP) requirement. The all-day workshop will offer basic information about special education laws and regulations for Indiana children ages 3-21. In addition, the workshop will provide information on how to prepare for a case conference and write an IEP.
Though lunch will not be provided, time will be allotted for those attending to eat lunch on their own.

Cost to attend is $40 for family members and $75 for professionals. Payments must be made prior to the event.

To register, go to http://www.aboutspecialkids.org/Training.aspx or call 800-964-4746. Registration for the training closes Oct. 6.
