Education Survival Kit for Parents (Webinar)

Presenter – Carolyn Romano, J.D.; Special Education Practice Leader, torchlight

In this webinar, parents will be introduced to the range of services and instructional support available to help their children be successful in school. We review the response-to-intervention (RTI) framework within general education as well as 504 plans and Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for eligible children with disabilities. Parents also learn about:

  • Embracing a strengths-based approach when it comes to their child
  • Developing a strong vision about what is possible for their child
  • Understanding and avoiding common pitfalls when collaborating with the school

Finally, we orient parents to Torchlight—a self-directed, online platform—and its many features.
