Free IEP Help Clinic: "Building Blocks of an IEP" - March 16, 2010

Posted: February 24, 2010

Attention parents and/or guardians: Does your child have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) through the school system that outlines the special education services your child is entitled to receive? Do you have problems getting the school system to provide the services listed on your child's IEP? Do you have difficulty getting the services you feel your child needs recommended by a professional, and listed on the IEP?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, sign up for the IEP HELP CLINIC offered by West Virginia Advocates (WVA). WVA is the protection and advocacy agency for people with disabilities in West Virginia.

During a roundtable discussion, a WVA attorney and advocate will answer questions and provide training and information on IEP development and discuss what you can do when you have problems. Training materials will be provided.

You must register in advance to attend the IEP HELP CLINIC. Space will be limited.

You will need to bring:

  • A copy of your child's current IEP, and
  • Most recent evaluations (by the school system and/or privately obtained)
When: Tuesday, March 16th 2010, 9AM - 3PM
Lunch will be provided by WVA at no charge!
Where: Blessed John XXIII Pastoral Center
100 Hodges Road
Charleston, WV 25314
