Families as Active Partners in the IEP Process with the Federation of Children with Special Needs

Saturday, May 4, 2024


Ahern Middle School


We are thrilled to announce an upcoming workshop that we are hosting in partnership with the Federation of Children with Special Needs (FCSN). This workshop will focus on the crucial role of families as active partners in the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process. It will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2024, from 8am to 12pm, at the Ahern Middle School. The IEP process plays a significant role in ensuring that each child with special needs receives the support and resources necessary to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. At the heart of this process lies the collaboration between families, educators, and service providers. This workshop presents a valuable opportunity for families to gain insights, ask questions, and connect with other families navigating similar journeys. We encourage all families with children receiving special education services to attend. Please register at or scanning the QR code on the attached flyer to secure your spot. We believe that by working together as partners, we can create meaningful and impactful educational experiences for our children. We look forward to seeing you at the workshop! Should you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected]
