Raising a child with special needs can be extremely challenging in today’s educational system. I have spoken with too many frustrated parents regarding IEPs and IEP meetings concerning their child. If you are one of those parents or if you are new to the process, I encourage you to attend The Arc’s IEP Advocates Boot Camp. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to become better informed and learn what rights you and your child have. Meet other parents who are experiencing the same issues that you are and together, you can learn conflict resolutions and better ways to advocate for your child while navigating the system.
