Navigating the school system can be a real challenge when your child has autism. An IEP, the Individual Education Plan, is the tool parents need to make sure the proper supports are set up for their child. (The IEP is a detailed guideline of any accommodations, curriculum adjustments and extra expectations/tools and is done each year for the school.)
Coordinated Access is doing a free full day workshop on Tuesday, September 27th from 9 to 4 at the RA Centre on 2451 Riverside Drive in Ottawa.
Participants must register by September 19th and do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Joyce Mounsteven will be doing the workshop: Developing An Effective IEP for students with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. She recommends bringing your child's IEP as a reference but cautions she will not be providing individual consultations.
