Little boy with glasses and a book

Four Part IEP Series starts Wed. January 17, 2018

No matter what your background, education, profession, trade, or any other circumstance in your life, that meeting changed your world as fast as you can say IEP.Nothing in your experience prepared you to take on the countless policies, procedures, laws, or the language of special education.
