I want to inform everyone about important upcoming events sponsored by ASNV.
Wrightslaw One Day Conference – October 14, 2010 (8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) University of Mary Washington, Fredericksburg, VA 22401
Special Education attorney Pete Wright brings his expertise to lead a one-day special education law and advocacy program which will focus on four areas:
- special education law, rights and responsibilities
- tests and measurements to measure progress & regression
- SMART IEPs
- Introduction to tactics & strategies for effective advocacy
The program is designed for parents, educators, advocates and attorneys who represent children with disabilities regarding special education.
This program is a must for parents struggling through the school system and advocating for their child’s special education needs. Advocates in health or law who represent such children and families should attend.
