Charting a Course to Success for Children with Communication Disabilities
Presented by: Susan Shapiro
In this workshop, parents and advocates will learn how to determine if an evaluation report meets requirements, an IEP goal is well crafted, and alternatives to traditional speech-language pathology services have been considered. Participants will be asked to review an example evaluation report and an IEP goal in advance of the workshop.
