This half-day workshop is designed for parents of ELLs in special education and/or parents that might need information regarding ELLs that receive special education services. Participants will gain a working knowledge of laws pertaining to special education and ELLs, including their role in the development of an appropriate Individualized Education Program (IEP) and how to be an effective partner with the CSE/IEP school team in the process.
