Aspiranet REACH Post-Adoption has partnered with EPU Children’s Center to put on a workshop titled, A Guide to IEPs and the Special Education Process. This is a FREE workshop for families to learn more about what an IEP entails and how to navigate the special education process. It is a great opportunity to learn how you can be an advocate in your child’s education and to ask questions to IEP experts.
Child care is available with limited capacity and a light dinner will be provided. Resource/foster families can also obtain training hours for attending!
**Please note that the event will take place at EPU!**
