IEP School Preparation at North Shore Pediatric Therapy

Prepare for IEP meetings with North Shore Pediatric Therapy's Prep Academy on July 26th
CHICAGO - July 9, 2015 - PRLog -- Believe it or not, the school year is right around the corner. School supplies will start going on sale. Kids will be pleading with mom and dad for a new school wardrobe. But will you be truly ready for success? The IEP Prep Academy provides you with the tools, strategies and confidence you need to develop an appropriate IEP and command your child’s next meeting.  The 2 hour workshop is led by School Advocate and School Psychologist, Shari Meserve who will guide you through each section of the IEP, step-by-step, arming you with information on relevant laws, key points, and advocacy tips that you can start using immediately. Now is the time to learn how to do a thorough analysis of your child’s IEP so you are prepared to meet with the IEP team and develop the best possible program when school starts in the fall.

This Workshop, led by Shari Meserve MS. Ed., Ed. S., will enable you to:

·     Better understand IDEA regulations that drive decision-making

·     Analyze and troubleshoot your child’s IEP including transition and behavior intervention plans

·     Understand your child’s data to assess how much (or how little) progress s/he is making

·     Write SMART IEP goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Results-Driven, Time-Bound)

·     Develop effective and proven advocacy strategies to ensure team collaboration and to maximize your child’s education

“There are so many rewarding aspects of my job: supporting parents through the IEP process, helping them to feel more comfortable and more powerful in meetings, and helping to ensure that their children’s needs are being meet. However, the single most gratifying aspect of my job is when I can teach a parent to advocate for him or herself, to the point where I am no longer needed.

I hope you can join us for this workshop…I guarantee that you will walk away with practical information and effective tools that will significantly increase your ability to effectively advocate for your child,” Shari Meserve MS. Ed., Ed. S.
