PACER Center workshop to explore how an IEP can help children with disabilities make educational progress

Minneapolis: PACER Center will offer “The ABCs of the IEP: A Guide to the Individualized Education Program (IEP) for Minnesota Parents,” a free workshop for parents of children with disabilities on an IEP. The workshop will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 10 at PACER, 8161 Normandale Blvd., Minneapolis.

This workshop will help parents understand how to use the Individualized Education Program (IEP) to benefit their child. Participants will use the PACER booklet “Guide for Minnesota Parents to the IEP” to understand how each required part of the IEP can be developed to meet their child’s needs.

The workshop will address measurable annual goals, progress reports, and direct and indirect services.

Parents will also gain knowledge about how to effectively participate in the annual IEP meeting. They will need to bring a copy of their child’s most recent school special education evaluation report and their child’s current IEP.

This event is funded in part by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Education.

To register for this free workshop, contact PACER Center at (952) 838-9000 or (800) 537-2237 (toll free), email [email protected], or visit
