Questions on special education and advocacy?
Danielle Wiltsie, Director of Individuals, Families & Advocate Support and Sheri Gaylord, Director at Wildwood Programs and parent of a young man with Autism, will engage participants in a solution focused discussion around the questions and concerns they choose to share. They will also explore your thoughts and ideas for future "What's Up With That?" discussion hours. Future discussions could include topics such as: Communicating with Your Child's Team, Progress Monitoring, Accommodations, Organizing Your Child's Records, Transition Planning, and What to Do If Your Child's IEP Isn't Followed.
